Salvador Perez homers in three-hit performance Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals catcher Salvador Perez went 3 for 4 with a double, a home run and three RBI in his team's 4-3 win over the Rangers Monday.

Perez delivered the first blow of the game with his RBI double in the bottom of the first, and he followed that up with a two-run home run in the third inning to put his team up 3-0. He's managed to produce multiple hits in four of his last six games, raising Perez's line to .269/.302/.424 with 16 home runs and 62 RBI in 484 at-bats.

Greg Holland strikes out two in 41st save
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals closer Greg Holland secured his 41st save Monday, striking out two during a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

Holland's save was his first since Aug. 22, and he's been used in nonsave situations in each of his last four outings. Monday's save makes it three straight days and five of six days in which he's pitched, so Holland is likely to be unavailable Tuesday. He owns a 1.63 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 78:18 K:BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.

Ventura (11-9) was scratched from his previous scheduled start with a back issue but pitched to form Monday, striking out plenty of batters while also issuing plenty of walks. He owns a 3.38 ERA and 132:57 K:BB ratio in 152 innings. Ventura is scheduled to face the Yankees Sunday.
