Today's hero Matt Davidson talks about the two-run homer he hit against the Rays that lifted the White Sox to their first home win of the season.

​ The White Sox narrowly averted a winless season-opening homestand by salvaging a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday at Guaranteed Rate Field. Matt Davidson clubbed a two-run homer to center field in the eighth off Austin Pruitt to lift Chicago to its first home win of the 2018 season. It was Davidson's fifth homer of the season. The White Sox lost their first five games of the homestand, each on chilly days and often before sparse gatherings. Thanks to Davidson, Chicago hits the road with at least one home win on the board.

There's been a lot of photos of an empty Guaranteed Rate Field from Monday going around. The weather in Chicago is much better today and turnout for the White Sox-Rays game is also better. Not great but it's a Wednesday afternoon in mid-April and these teams are not exactly lighting it on fire. There is a smattering of fans in the grandstand as well, though from my vantage point, the only humans I can see in the upper deck are two lonely ushers.

I've been to four parks in the early going and every team is displaying mound visits remaining a little differently. Here at Guaranteed Rate Field, it's right there as part of the line score. So far, I've observed zero mound visit drama in the games I've been to.

What a comeback by the Red Sox, scoring six runs in the eighth to stun the Rays with an 8-7 victory to improve to 8-1, the best nine-game start in team history. Keep an eye on Xander Bogaerts, however, as he left the game limping off the field after chasing a loose ball into the dugout. Nothing has gone right for the Rays, who fell to 1-8 as closer Alex Colome now has two blown saves.


Bogaerts' slam, 6 RBIs carries Red Sox past Rays 10-3

Xander Bogaerts hit the first grand slam by a Boston player since the end of the 2016 season and drove in a career-best six runs to carry the Red Sox to a 10-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Saturday for their seventh straight victory.

Red Sox slugger Hanley Ramirez added a little bit of levity to an exciting finish following his walk-off hit against the Rays on Opening Day. After his bases-loaded fly in the 12th won the game, Ramirez led his teammates on a chase in shallow right field as he attempted to dodge getting doused at frigid Fenway Park. "It warmed me up a little bit, that sprint right there," Ramirez said. Knowing he couldn't outrun his teammates — and not wanting anyone to get hurt — Ramirez said he quickly decided to "just stop and celebrate."


Red Sox rally late, beat Rays 3-2 in 12th for 6th win in row

Hanley Ramirez blooped a bases-loaded fly ball over the drawn-in outfield in right to break a 12th-inning tie and the Boston Red Sox, who rallied from a two-run deficit in the ninth, beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2 to win their home opener at Fenway Park...
