  • By the Numbers Matt Davidson leads another home run barrage in KC

KANSAS CITY, MO - APRIL 27: Matt Davidson #24 of the Chicago White Sox hits his second home run of the game in the top of the eleventh inning to give the White Sox a two run lead over the Kansas City Royals on April 27, 2018 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. This will be his first night start of the season. They have blasted 12 home runs and scored 24 runs. What makes it even worse is the fact that 21 of those runs came in two games.

Coming up from Kauffman Stadium on Friday, the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals will be meeting up to continue their Major League Baseball series.

The White Sox have lost six of their last seven series openers and seven of their last eight against a right-handed starter. Kansas City is now 5-17 on the season and 1-9 at home.

The Royals will send left-hander Danny Duffy to the mound Friday to try to slow down the White Sox momentum at Kauffman Stadium.

The Royals have lost four of their last five games SU. The Royals are putting up just 3.27 runs per game while giving up 5.59 per contest. Davidson is 6-for-10 with five home runs in the three games. The bullpen has managed an ERA of 5.17, along with a K-per-9 of 9.83.

Carson Fulmer allowed four singles over seven innings and Daniel Palka had four hits and drove in three runs as the Chicago White Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals 8-0 in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday. You can also bet on the game's spread with the current runline odds sitting at -200 for the White Sox +1.5 runs and +170 for the Royals -1.5. While Lopez has not allowed more than four hits or two runs in his first four starts, he is winless, 0-2 with a 1.50 ERA.

Runners left in scoring position: Chicago 2 (Anderson, Garcia); Kansas City 6 (Jay 2, Moustakas, Duda, Gordon, Goins).

Duffy is 7-6 with a 4.46 ERA in 21 outings (19 starts) against the White Sox for his career. The Royals have not been a great offensive team, but they have been better on offense at home than on the road and will get their runs in this one. Chicago will find some offensive success in this one.
