Matt Davidson hit two of the Sox's five home runs, leading them to a 6-3 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night.

This was supposed to be a much better season for the Chicago White Sox than they have had the past few years, but so far it has been a terrible start for them. He hit a three-run homer in the seventh off Burch Smith.

The Chicago White Sox will be taking on their divisional rival Kansas City Royals at Ewing M. Kauffman Stadium.

The Kansas City Royals are in for a very long year and are off to a 5-17 start so far.

The White Sox hit five home runs in all. He was 1-5 with a 4.60 ERA in sunlight starts in 2017.

Moncada is slashing.264/.360/.563 with six home runs, 12 RBIs and 15 runs scored, while Davidson (.225/.353/.563) has produced seven homers, 15 RBIs and 13 runs scored. He went 8-5 with a 3.46 ERA in night games a year ago. Seven of them have come in three games against Kansas City; he had three on Opening Day and now four the last two days.

Trevor Oaks (0-1), who was the Royals' 26h man, gave up five runs on 12 hits over five innings in his major league debut. 2B: Almonte (1), Moustakas (6), Goins (2).

Kansas City (-115) is the favorite against Chicago (+105) and Vegas has put the Over/Under for this game at nine runs (+100 for the over and -120 for the under).

The Royals have lost four of their last five games SU. Like the Sox, the Royals have had their issues on offense this year and after scoring just four runs in the two games against the Brewers, they have now averaged just 2.42 rpg in their last seven home games. The pen for the Royals ranks 30th in the league with a 7.15 ERA.

These are two of the worst teams in the league, but this series has a chance to be a fun one as neither team can pitch worth a lick. I'm going to stick with Lopez to have a strong start here and help the White Sox bag a win in game two. Chicago will find some offensive success in this one. The White Sox have not yet announced their starter.
