MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — The Royals may have lost 6-5 to the Minnesota Twins on Saturday afternoon, but catcher Salvador Perez still made history on the road at Target Field.

In the top of the third inning, Perez homered to left field to tie the game at 2-2.

That homerun would bring his tally to 19 in his career at the Twins’ stadium, which is good for the most by an opposing player in stadium history.

Perez is tied with Carlos Santana for the most homeruns on the team this season with 10.
