Khris Davis' Opening Day Home Run Has Him on Track to Tie an MLB Record

You guys, baseball is back!

If you're one of the brave and dedicated people who woke up early/stayed up late to watch the A's open up the season in Japan against the Mariners, I salute you.

If not, that's OK, we got you covered with some of the top moments during the A's 9-7 loss to the Mariners. 

Stephen Piscotty got the first hit of the 2019 season with a homer to center field, and Khris Davis did Davis-like things with a long ball of his own in the bottom of the third. 

This homer was his third Opening Day home run in a row:

He's just one home run from tying the record at four joining a pretty prestigious group: Gary Carter from 1977-80, Todd Hundley (1994 -97), and Yogi Berra (1955-58).

So, he could be the fourth guy to reach this feat. 

And a note from Ryan Spaeder of The Ace of Spaeder who helped assist me with these findings:

"Frank Robinson hit home runs in eight different Opening Day games, but never three straight, like Khris Davis did today," Spaeder told NBC Sports Bay Area.

He's also hit a .247 batting average over the course of four straight seasons, and guess what he's estimated to hit in 2019? 

Yep, .247. Crazy right?

Oh, and he's also a career .247 spring training hitter.

Of course he is.

If anything else, the man is consistent.
