    Royals' Perez ties Bench's HR mark with 45th in loss to A's

    Salvador Perez tied Johnny Bench's record for homers in a season by a catcher with his 45th, but Chad Pinder's two-run single spurred a third-inning rally and the Oakland Athletics held off the Kansas City Royals 7-2 Thursday. Perez hit a two-run homer in the first inning, matching Bench's total from 1970 for the most by a player who played at least 75% of his team's games at catcher. Perez's 45 homers and 112 RBIs both lead the majors this season.

    A's hold off Royals 12-10 to keep pace in AL wild-card race

    Matt Olson hit a two-run homer, Josh Harrison drove in three runs and Elvis Andrus had four hits as the Oakland Athletics held on through a nervy ninth inning to beat the Kansas City Royals 12-10 on Wednesday night. Oakland's Sean Manaea (10-9) was far from flawless against his former team, allowing five runs in five innings.

    Perez hits 43rd homer as Royals rally past Athletics, 10-7

    Salvador Perez is having the kind of season the Kansas City Royals won't soon forget. The Oakland A's are having the kind of September they might want to forget real soon. Perez hit a go-ahead, three-run homer in the sixth inning Tuesday night, giving him 43 on the season and the big league lead in RBIs, and the Kansas City bullpen bailed out starter Jackson Kowar as the Royals rallied from a six-run deficit for a 10-7 victory that knocked the sliding Athletics further out of playoff contention.
