KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Salvador Perez homered and made a key pickoff throw to help the Royals secure the win. Perez hit a solo home run off the foul pole in the seventh that gave the Royals a two-run lead. In the eighth, the World Series MVP made the defensive play of the game. With runners at the corners and one out, the Kansas City catcher picked Kyle Seager off first base. The pickoff was Perez's first of the season and 18th of his career.
