On the opening day, the White Sox crime exploded in Kansas City. Actually only for the last two-thirds of the game, but man, they have gone crazy.
Royals starter Danny Duffy's White Sox were held goalless for three innings, scoring five runs in the fourth and three in the fifth, seventh and eighth rounds, leading to a 14-7 win. They hit a total of 14 goals, including three doubles and six home runs. Shortstop Tim Anderson hit two homers, but star of the show was designated hitter Matt Davidson.
The Davidson Boxing Score: 4-4-3-5.
However, this does not do justice to his game because his three goals were all homeruns.
Three Opening Day Home Runs are something. It's record-binding. Here is the list of players in MLB history who have done this feat:
- George Bell, 1
- Tuffy Rhodes, 1994
- Dmitri Young, 2005
- Matt Davidson, 2018
The It's a lot of fun.
The fun does not end here, as the White Sox played six home games as a team – the other Jose Abreu – also tied the MLB record for the opening day. It's hard to believe that no team has ever hit seven home runs, right? Although there is a lot of cold weather, I suppose. But believe it or not, the only other team in history to hit six homeruns on opening day was the 1988 Mets. This means the White Sox set the AL record as part of the MLB record retention process ,
The start with 1: 0 is always great. For a team that has lost 95 games in the past year, this record is excellent. Good for Rick Renteria and his troops.
