The three-homer game was just part of Davis' recent hot streak. One night earlier, he homered in the series opener against the Aces.
Fast forward to Saturday night, when Davis kept the party going by hitting his seventh homer as a River Cat in the top of the second inning.

ANOTHER bomb! His 4th in two days - kitties leading 6-2 in the second 🔥
If you thought Davis was done, you'd be wrong. In the top of the sixth, he went yard again.

If you're keeping track, that's six homers in three games for Davis, who now has eight taters in 14 games since coming to the Giants organization at the July 31 MLB trade deadline. Between Double-A Pensacola, Triple-A Rochester and Sacramento, Davis now has 33 homers this season.
You read that correctly. 33.
The leader on the big league club is Kevin Pillar with 17 homers this season.
On July 31, a source familiar with the Twins organization provided a scouting report on Davis, and the conclusion was pretty accurate:
"Big power, especially to the opposite-field gap. Hits the ball really hard, has been on fire since going up to Triple-A. Swing-and-miss risk. Average right fielder and can handle center in a pinch. Solid throwing arm."

The 25-year-old is making it hard for the Giants to keep him down in Sacramento. It might be time for president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi to find room for him on the big league roster.
