Paul Goldschmidt simply does not stop.
The St. Louis Cardinals slugger and first baseman was at it again yesterday, hitting two home runs in the Cards’ 8-3 series-clinching victory over the Chicago Cubs.
Goldschmidt went 3-for-4 and had 5 RBI, which now puts him in the lead over Pete Alonso, with 105 total RBI.
Goldschmidt still owns the highest batting average in all of baseball (.339), but now he’s just one back of Kyle Schwarber for the NL lead in home runs, which means he has a very good chance at potentially winning the Triple Crown.
Goldschmidt leads the National League in two of the three categories required for the Triple Crown, but he could be in the lead for all three before too long.
Goldy is on the verge of history 👑

Goldy On Pace For History
Goldschmidt just isn’t slowing down.
He’s been one of, if not the top player in all of baseball this season.
There simply isn’t a way to slow him down right now.
Goldschmidt has a legitimate shot at actually doing it.
At the very least, Goldschmidt looks like the clear-cut favorite to win the NL MVP Award.
With one month left in the season, Goldschmidt will look to continue this run of success and lead the Cards to their first division title since 2019.
