Goldschmidt had 16 hits, six of which were doubles, one triple and four home runs in the last week, with 11 RBIs. His slash line was .640/.690/1.440.
Goldschmidt’s offensive numbers exploded in Colorado where he helped to lead the D-backs’ to a sweep of the Rockies.
This is the third time this season a Diamondbacks’ player has won the award. Patrick Corbin was honored on April 23 and AJ Pollock on May 7.
