Perez went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and another RBI during Thursday's win over the Tigers. Perez got the scoring started with a two-run shot against Michael Fulmer in the first inning. It was his third long ball over the last two games after the 30-year-old homered twice Wednesday. On the season, Perez has tallied a team-leading 11 home runs while slashing .360/.375/.683.
Perez went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and five RBI in Wednesday's win over the Cardinals. Perez launched a two-run shot in the first and a three-run bomb in the third inning, and he also added a double in the fifth -- all of them against Carlos Martinez. It was a vintage performance for the Venezuelan backstop, who has been one of the most dangerous hitters in the league of late -- he has hit safely in 10 of the Royals' last 11 games while posting seven multi-hit performances and a .446 average during that span.
Perez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's 5-3 loss to Milwaukee. The Royals entered the ninth inning down 5-1 but managed a solid comeback attempt with Perez launching a two-out, two-run shot to close the gap. The 30-year-old catcher now owns a terrific 1.025 OPS with eight homers and 24 RBI this season.
Perez went 4-for-5 with a homer, four RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in Friday's 9-5 loss to the Brewers. Perez was directly involved in all of the Royals' runs. He supplied a two-run double in the first inning and recorded his first steal of the year before scoring on an error. In the third, he knocked in Adalberto Mondesi with a single for the Royals' fourth run. Perez added a solo shot in the ninth for good measure. The catcher has multiple hits in each of his last six games, going 15-for-26 (.577) with three homers, 10 RBI and seven runs scored in that span.
Perez went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a home run, three RBI and a run scored Wednesday against Detroit. Perez drilled a two-run home run in the first inning, his sixth of the season. He followed that up with a double five frames later, and ultimately accounted for three of the four runs the Royals scored. Since returning from the injured list, Perez has collected 11 hits in 21 at-bats while also slugging two home runs, driving in six and scoring five runs across five starts.
