Matt Davidson is making a habit out of this whole walk-off winner thing.
The White Sox third baseman's RBI single in the bottom of the ninth capped off a massive comeback for the South Siders in their 7-6 victory over the Blue Jays.
The White Sox trailed 6-0 at one point and were down 6-1 heading into the 8th inning. An RBI double from Jose Abreu and homers from Davidson (two-run) and Yolmer Sanchez (solo) put the White Sox within a run heading to the final frame.
Abreu's single with two outs tied the game, playing Adam Engel. One batter later Davidson was up to his old tricks again.
After hitting a walk-off homer in Sunday's win over the Twins, Davidson slapped a single to center to give the White Sox an improbabe victory.
"It’s huge for us,"" Davidson said after the game. "I’ll take it. We’re all contributing. … To win like that is awesome."
Davidson, who leads the White Sox with 22 homers, is enjoying a solid rookie campaign after some early-career struggles in the minors. At-bats like Monday night can do plenty for the 26-year-old's confidence,
"It's probably lifting (Davidson) up to the sky right now. He's feeling good about himself. Obviously the situation was to put together a great at-bat. He didn't try to do too much," manager Rick Renteria said. "Put the bat on the ball and was able to allow us to drive in the final run and win the ballgame. It just takes you, for him, to a point where your confidence builds a little. I think you gain more and more trust in who you are what you're capable of doing."
