Kansas City, Missouri, USA – Salvador Perez combined Johnny Bench’s record for most home runs by a catcher in a season to 45, which did not prevent the Auckland Athletics from losing on Thursday the 7th. -2 to Kansas City Royals.
Chad Binder hit a two-run single to trigger the attack in the third inning for an athletic victory.
Perez scored two runs in the first inning, playing at least 75% of his games as a catcher with the record set by the bench in 1970.
Venezuela’s 45 homers and his 112 RBIs make up key figures for the major leagues this season.
“We’re seeing a special season,” manager Mike Madheni said. And he is a special player. It is very rare to be mentioned as one of the best in the same conversation. “
Perez’s talent was not noticed against his rivals.
“It looks like Salvador can hit a daily home run against everyone,” said Auckland manager Bob Melvin. “You can’t rule against him right now.”
Binder won by two outs during a four-touch down offense in the third inning. Auckland then put seven runners in the bat with a pair of wins.
The athlete also scored three runs in the ninth inning, only one win. Auckland started the three-and-a-half day game in a match for two wild-card places for the American League playoffs after Toronto, Boston and the New York Yankees.
Paul Blackburn (1-2) worked over five innings for Auckland. He had two runs and six wins.
Daniel Lynch (4-5) lost. He came out with a left calf problem in the third inning. He allowed three runs (one earned) and two wins in two innings, during which time he walked and hit two wins.
For athletics, Dominican Starling Marte 4-1. Venezuela’s Elvis Andres scored 2-1.
For the Royals, Venezuelan Perez are two Reserve Banks with a score of 4-2, Edward Oliver 1-0, Sebastian Rivero 3-2. Dominicans Atalberto Montes 4-2, Hancer Alberto 1-1, Carlos Santana 1-0.
