Paul Goldschmidt bailed out the Arizona Diamondbacks twice on Tuesday night when it looked like they were going to fall futher behind in the National League West and the National League Wild Card Race. On Tuesday, it was a pair of leadoff homers — one in the ninth off Orioles closer Jim Johnson to tie the game and one in the 11th to win it that added to Goldschmidt’s MVP candidacy and gave the Diamondbacks a 4-3 win over the Baltimore Orioles. It was Goldschmidt’s fourth multi-homer game this season and he now leads the National League with 29 home runs. He also has 93 RBI, 13 stolen bases with a .297 batting average. Put all that together and Goldy is having a in an incredible fantasy season.
