Kansas City has a new owner, and his name is Matt Davidson.
The White Sox slugger hit two more home runs — including the game-winner — on Friday night in the White Sox 7-4 win over the Royals in 11 innings. He also went yard twice on Thursday night. And we certainly can't forget about his three home-run game in the season opener.
Davidson's season total is at nine, and seven of them have come at Kauffman Stadium. He's also batting .533/.611/1.933 in four games in Kansas City.
