Perez, Moustakas homer to lift Royals over Tigers 8-2

DETROIT (AP) There was no way any Detroit outfielder was going to catch this drive by Salvador Perez.

A night after he was robbed of an extra-base hit by the center fielder, Perez hit a two-run homer in the fourth inning, and the Kansas City Royals went on to an 8-2 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday. Mike Moustakas followed Perez's long home run by going deep as well, part of a four-run fourth inning by the Royals.

Perez's shot cleared the Kansas City bullpen and hit the brick facing behind the seats. It was measured at 451 feet by Statcast.
