Perez went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 9-8 win over the Tigers.

With the Royals in a 5-0 hole heading into the bottom of the fifth inning, Perez kick-started the rally in earnest by chasing Casey Mize from the game with his 22nd homer of the year. The veteran catcher isn't matching last season's extraordinary pace, but he's still slashing an impressive .279/.310/.500 through 96 games.
