    with his third goal in as many games.

    United's new striker confounded the critics with his third goal in as many games.

    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: with his third goal in as many games.

    It means that he has played three games, and scored three goals; probably one goal in each game, but not necessarily.

    They don't score "goals" in baseball. "Striker" is a soccer position.

    And United is used in some football (soccer) team names, like Manchester United.
