Matt Davidson Homers In Fourth Straight Game


Matt Davidson homered in his fourth straight contest off of Chris Tillman to put the Chicago White Sox the lead over the Baltimore Orioles.

The last White Sox player to deposit four long balls over the wall was Alex Rios in 2013.

Davidson is on a tear recently slashing .285/.348/.714 with an OPS of 1.062 over the past seven days. The slugger has platooned as a designated hitter with limited action at the hot corner when Todd Frazier needs a blow. Leading into today’s game Davidson owns a .253 batting average with 13 home runs — good enough to rank him in fourth place among rookies.

An acquisition from the Diamondbacks organization in a trade, Davidson stumbled last season with a foot injury in his White Sox debut but has resurfaced in the show and put together a strong season thus far.

Davidson’s future is uncertain with the South Siders considering the recent selection of Jake Burger and the unknown¬†direction of Todd Frazier‘s career with the White Sox. But if he keeps peppering the outfield seats he may force his way into an extended role in Chicago.
