Goldschmidt gets it done against Lincecum, Giants again

By From page B3 | April 10, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO — Paul Goldschmidt realizes his good fortunes against Tim Lincecum could turn at any moment, so he’s the last one who will be caught celebrating a remarkable streak of home runs against the two-time NL Cy Young Award winner.

Goldschmidt did it again Wednesday night, showing he has some freak in him, too.

The slugger hit a three-run homer and sacrifice fly to pound Lincecum early, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Francisco Giants 7-3 for a nice lift after a slow start.

Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer and finished a double shy of the cycle, while Eric Chavez added an RBI triple for his first hit in his first start of the year for Arizona.

Goldschmidt is batting .542 (13-for-24) with seven homers and 17 RBIs all-time against Lincecum, including a two-run homer last week at Chase Field.

Michael Morse and Buster Posey hit solo homers against Bronson Arroyo (1-0), who won his third straight decision against San Francisco.

Arroyo was staked to a nice lead early and worked five innings to earn his first win since joining the D-backs in February. He had a no-decision against the Giants last Thursday.
