CHICAGO — With about two months left in the regular season, Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez tied his season-high record for homeruns in Chicago against the White Sox.

In route to a 9-1 victory, Salvy sent homerun no. 27 into the stands in the top of the third inning.

His 27th homer ties him with Red Sox third-baseman Rafael Devers for fifth in the league.

2021 is the third time Perez has reached 27 homeruns in a season, but with several games left to play, he is on pace to crush his record.

The Royals finish their 3-game series with Chicago Thursday night and head to St. Louis on Friday to face the Cardinals in a 3-game series.

They return to Kauffman on Monday, Aug. 9 to take on the New York Yankees.
