Salvador Perez stays in Royals’ lineup despite knee injury

The elements appeared in place for a night off for Royals catcher Salvador Perez. He had tweaked his right knee the night before. His replacement, Erik Kratz, boomed two homers in his absence. As the club slogs through a pennant race, the health of their backstop is crucial. Yet Perez occupied his customary place in the team’s lineup at Coors Field.
