Goldschmidt a late scratch with sore back
PHOENIX -- About an hour before first pitch Friday at Chase Field, the D-backs scratched first baseman Paul Goldschmidt from the lineup with a sore back and replaced him with Mike Jacobs.

Goldschmidt entered the game appearing in his club's last 26 games, dating back to Aug. 28.

The 25-year-old is batting .289 with 19 homers and 81 RBIs this season.

Since being called up from Triple-A Reno earlier this month, Jacobs has played in eight games for the D-backs in September, collecting one hit in seven at-bats.
