Diamondbacks Slugger Paul Goldschmidt Hits 3 Homers vs Cubs
Friday August 4th, 2017

Paul Goldschmidt hit three home runs against the Cubs on Thursday, the third of which provided the winning run in the Diamondbacks' 10-8 win over the Cubs. It was the first three-homer game of Goldschmidt's career. 

Goldschmidt started the party in the first inning with a long homer to left center of Jose Quintana. The bomb landed in the very top rows of Wrigley's left-center bleachers. 

In the fifth, Goldschmidt took Quintana yard again, this time down the left-field line.

Goldschmidt went yard once again in the ninth off Cubs closer Wade Davis to put Arizona up 9-8. J.D. Martinez followed that up with a solo shot of his own to give the Diamondbacks a 10-8 lead, and Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth to give Arizona the victory. .
