Perez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 7-2 win over Cleveland during the first game of Monday's doubleheader.

The veteran catcher took Triston McKenzie deep in the fifth inning, wrapping up the scoring for the Royals in the matinee. Perez is now tied with Vladimir Guerrero for the major-league lead in homers at 46 -- a total that sets a new MLB record for most home runs in a season by a catcher, breaking the mark set by Johnny Bench in 1970.
