Perez Three Run Blast Lifts Royals Past Rays

Associated Press - July 9, 2014 10:55 pm

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – Salvador Perez hit a go ahead, three run homer in the ninth inning and the Kansas City Royals beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 Wednesday night.

Kirby Yates (0-1), the fifth Tampa Bay reliever, entered with runners on first and third with one out and gave up Perez’s towering shot into the left field corner.

It’s been a big week for Perez, chosen Sunday to start at catcher for the American League in next week’s All Star game.

Aaron Crow (4-1) pitched a scoreless eighth for the win. Greg Holland got three outs for his 24th save.

The second place Royals return home Thursday night to begin a four game series against AL Central leading Detroit, which has a 4 1/2-game lead.
