To say it's been a pretty good couple days for Arizona Diamondbacks third base prospect Matt Davidson would be a tremendous understatement.

Sunday, Davidson clubbed a two-run homer helping the U.S. Team to a 4-2 win over the World Team at the MLB All-Star Futures Game at Citi Field.

Monday night, Davidson showed off his power again, winning the IGT Home Run Derby at Aces Ballpark in Reno, Nevada over St. Louis prospect Brock Peterson.

Davidson hit four homers in the first round and two more in the second to advance to the final against Peterson, where he hit four more.

For the season, Davidson has 14 home runs in 344 at-bats -- second on Reno's roster and tied for ninth-best in the Pacific Coast League.

The 22-year-old will participate in the Triple-A All-Star Game Tuesday night in Reno.
