Alfonso Soriano is putting on his own show on Broadway this week in the Bronx for Yankee fans. A night after going 3-for-6 with two home runs and six RBI, Soriano had an even better night against Jered Weaver and the Angels on Wednesday. Soriano went 3-for-3 with two more home runs and seven RBI, including a grand slam in the first inning. He added a solo home run and a two-run double and he drew a walk. Soriano is known for his hot streaks and his long droughts at the plate, but by collecting 13 RBI in the past two games of this series, Soriano became just one of three players to have at least six RBI in consecutive games. Enjoy this ride fantasy owners, but don't be surprised if an 0-15 slump for Soriano is right around that corner.
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.
