Goldschmidt powers Diamondbacks to 11-7 win over Reds
CINCINNATI (AP) — Paul Goldschmidt hit a pair of two-run homers, Ender Inciarte homered and drove in three runs and the Arizona Diamondbacks held on for an 11-7 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night.
Goldschmidt, who hadn't homered since July 27, had the seventh multihomer game of his career and finished with four hits and three runs.
The Diamondbacks matched last season's total of 31 road wins while sending the Reds to their eighth consecutive loss — one shy of matching the team's longest of the season.
All-Star center fielder A.J. Pollock followed his back-to-back, four-hit games by going 3 for 5 and scoring two runs. Chris Owings went 3 for 4 to improve to 8 for 12 over the first three games of the four-game series.
Zack Godley (4-0) allowed one run in 3 2-3 relief innings for the win.
