Salvador Perez This Series: 5-for-11, run, 2B, 2 RBI Last Trip: 6-for-24 (.250), 2 runs, 2B, RBI, IBB Hit Streak: 3 g (5-11) = Salvy recorded his 11th multi-hit game of the year, going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles last night...batting.381 (16-for-42) at home this season, including 5-for-11 on the current stand...also batting.324 (23-for-71) with four doubles, a homer and 10 RBI against A.L. Central foes this season. = Perez recorded his 12th two-out RBI Friday night, tying him for second in the Majors with Josh Reddick, behind only Yoenis Cespedes (13)...he s batting.342 (13-for- 38) with a.632 slugging pct. (2 doubles, 3 homers) with 2 outs this year...tied for third in the league with 11 multi-hit games, while he s also fifth with a.458 average with RISP. = He s thrown out 8 would-be basestealers already this season, ranks second in the A.L., behind Russell Martin (10)...since his first Gold Glove season in 2013, he s caught 54 baserunners trying to steal, which ranks second to Martin (67) among all big league backstops in that span...also fourth among active catchers with 13 career pickoffs. = Caught every inning during the Royals postseason run...combining the regular season and postseason, his 161 games behind the plate were the most in MLB history... hit.333 (8-for-24) with a double and a homer during the World Series...his home run came against series MVP Madison Bumgarner in Game #1.
4 This & That DAYTON MOORE TO HOST BOOK SIGNING TOMORROW--Royals General Manager Dayton Moore will host a pre-launch for his book, More Than a Season at 6:30 p.m., tomorrow, at the Kansas City Public Library - Plaza Branch at 4801 Main Street...Moore and co-author of the book, Matt Fulks, will be on stage for a discussion and Q&A session, followed by a book signing...copies of the book will be available for purchase, while for $50, fans can meet with Moore and receive a personalized autographed book as well as an opportunity for priority seating at the event...all proceeds from the event will benefit Moore s C You In The Major Leagues Foundation. ONE-RUN BLUES--Kansas City dropped its second one-run decision of the year last night, it had been a lot longer for its starting pitcher...edison Volquez suffered his first one-run loss since April 24, 2009, when the Braves beat him, 4-3, when he pitched for the Cincinnati Reds...coming into last night s start, Volky had won 12-straight games decided by the narrowest of margins, while his.773 winning percentage (17-5) in one-run affairs is still tops in baseball since the start of 2005 among hurlers with at least 20 decisions. HOLLY BACK SOON--Two-time All-Star Greg Holland threw a simulated game yesterday before batting practice and is hopeful to rejoin the club this week...holland has been sidelined since April 18 with a right pectoral strain after experiencing discomfort during his outing the night before...the 29-year-old righty has converted 90 of his last 93 save opportunities (97 percent) since May 30, 2013, while his rescue total is tops in the Major Leagues in that span, two ahead of San Diego s Craig Kimbrel (88)...since becoming the full-time closer in the middle of the 2012 season, Holland has posted a 1.40 ERA, recording six wins and 113 saves along with 230 strikeouts in innings. CENTRALIZING THE SCHEDULE--The Royals begin their final week of a three-week tour of division rivals...since April 20, KC has played nothing but A.L. Central clubs, going 7-5 thus far with four games remaining against these Tigers (one today, three in Detroit) and three with the Indians...the Royals are 11-7 overall in division play, which is a stark contrast to last season when the club dropped 13 of their first 18 contests against Central foes, including the first five against these Tigers. ANOTHER SELLOUT--Kauffman Stadium is the place to be this season as the Royals recorded their fourth sellout crowd of the year, matching their 2014 regular season total, in just their 12th home game...kc officials are expecting another capacity crowd today in the final game of this series with Detroit...the club has drawn 364,227 fans to its 12 games at The K, which ranks fourth in the American League, behind only New York, Boston and Detroit...KC s average crowd of 30,352 is nearly double of what the club averaged in 2014 (18,979) through 12 games...the fan support has helped the Royals go 9-3 at home, best in the American League. DAY BALL--The Royals will play their first day game in a week and just their third in their last 16 contests, enterting today at 5-2 under the afternoon sun...kc has won all three of its afternoon home games, mostly recently a 4-2 come-from-behind victory over Oakland on April 17...as a team, the Royals have averaged 6.7 runs per game during the day, compared to 4.5 at night, while batting.301 with a.496 slugging percentage...on the mound, KC s pre-evening ERA is 2.51 (17 ER in 61.0 IP), while holding the opposition to a.220 batting average. RUN DIFFERENTIAL TAKES SMALL HIT--Kansas City s one-run defeat last night didn t hurt its Major League-best run differential as the Royals have outscored their opposition by 47 runs in their first 24 games this year...the Royals finished the month of April plus-45 in run differential, their best total in a single month since August of 1980, when the club was 53 runs on the plus side...kc s +47 run differential leads the bigs by eight over I-70 rival, St. Louis (+39), while the surprising Astros are second in the A.L. and third in the Majors at +36. PEN MAINTAINS LOWEST ERA--Franklin Morales and Yohan Pino combined for three scoreless innings last night, helping the Royals reduce their already microscopic bullpen ERA to a Major League-best 1.04 (9 ER in 77.2 IP)...the pen has tossed the 12th-most frames in the big leagues, but has allowed the fewest runs (9) and second fewest hits (42), while they also rank second in opponents batting average (.158), one point behind the Yankees (.157). LEADERS OF THE PACK--Kansas City lost ground on their quest for the best record in baseball, trailing St. Louis (17-6) by 1.5 games and are a full game behind Houston (17-7) for the best record in the A.L...however, the Royals continue to lead the Majors in batting average (.300) and on-base pct. (.355), hits (254) and have struck out the fewest times (136)...the Royals are also third in the Majors in slugging pct. (.441) and tied for fourth in doubles (50)...KC s pitching staff has allowed the fewest runs (77) and the third-fewest hits (171) in the American League, while its.987 fielding percentage ranks sixth in the bigs. NED TO MANAGE NO. 800 TODAY--The 16th full-time manager in Royals history, Ned Yost, is the franchise leader in games manager with 799, which is 67th alltime, 12 behind Billy Southwick for the 66th spot...ned has posted a mark as KC skipper, just 21 victories shy of tying Whitey Herzog (410) as the winningest manager in team history... he s also 15 wins shy of second place Dick Howser (404)...Yost was named to his post on May 13, this is his second stint as a big league manager after nearly six full campaigns at the helm for the Milwaukee Brewers ( )...he compiled a record with the Brew Crew including a mark in his last two seasons...ned s 846 career wins are good for 72nd all-time. vs. Tigers (2015) vs. Tigers (career) At Home (career) Sanchez (career) Salazar (career) Player AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI AVG AB H HR RBI Cain Calixte Colon Dyson Gordon Hosmer Infante Kratz Morales Moustakas Orlando Perez Starting Pitchers Breakdown Total KC Avg.
