Believe me, I know “most home runs in one season against the Kansas City Royals” in an impeccably dumb record to hold, but the notion that Matt Davidson had something like seven in the first seven games of the season in K.C. and now will go the entire final series without as much as an at-bat is ludicrous.
And if this is a matter of Davidson being “sore” after playing too much first base in José Abreu’s stead, why the hell is he on the roster?
Anyway, this is a stupid rant over a stupid “record.” But back in March, when Hurricane Matt announced his arrival in dastardly exit velocity fashion, I don’t think any of us thought his season would end with such a whimper.
So, anyway, here are the lineups. On the White Sox side, Carlos Rodón hopes his last start was just a one-game setback in what has been a marvelous season. A loss tonight ties Chicago’s longest losing streak of the season, at eight.
Carlos Rodón is 5-2 with a 2.53 ERA, .171 opp. average and 1.04 WHIP in his last 11 starts (nine QS). His 2.53 ERA is third-lowest in the American League behind Cleveland's Carlos Carrasco (2.43) and Boston's David Price (2.47).— Chicago White Sox (@whitesox) September 12, 2018

The Royals have a magic number of 12 to clinch the No. 2 pick in the 2019 draft.
