CINCINNATI (AP) - Paul Goldschmidt set a Diamondbacks record with his third grand slam of the season on Tuesday night and became the first NL player to drive in 100 runs, powering Arizona to a 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
Goldschmidt connected in the eighth inning off J.J. Hoover, ending the reliever's streak of 23 scoreless appearances. His 31st homer tied him with Pittsburgh's Pedro Alvarez for the NL lead. All of his career grand slams have come this season.
Left-hander Patrick Corbin (13-3) stymied Cincinnati's lefty-dominated lineup, pitching a six-hitter, including Chris Heisey's two-run homer, during his second complete game. Corbin matched his career high with 10 strikeouts.
The left-hander shut down the Reds' left-handed threats - Shin-Soo Choo, Joey Votto and Jay Bruce were a combined 0 for 12 with seven strikeouts.
