Indians' Perez throws biggest pitch of game vs. Royals' Pena

Chris Perez appeared to be staying away from Carlos Pena’s power and pitching him on the outside part of the plate. The count moved to 2-0 and that’s when home plate umpire Doug Eddings started giving Perez pitches down and away and off the plate. After a fastball and a slider were called a strike, Perez missed and the count went to 3-2. That’s when Perez threw the pitch of the night: a backdoor slider that locked up Pena for a called strike three.
