Salvador Perez’s three-run homer lifts Royals to 5-4 victory over Tampa Bay Rays

The ninth-inning blast saved the Royals the indignity of a losing record on this nine-game jaunt. Thanks to the late bolt of lightning, the Royals (47-43) exit Tropicana Field with a 5-4 record on this trip. Now, the team returns to Kauffman Stadium for a four-game series against the division-leading Tigers. They will be without Jason Vargas, and likely without Alex Gordon. But they will have momentum.
