Salvador Perez went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI, leading the Royals to a 3-2 victory over the Rockies on Tuesday.

Perez returned from the disabled list without missing a beat on Tuesday. He lined an RBI double to the gap in right-center field to plate Eric Hosmer in the fourth inning with what would be the eventual winning run. The hard-hitting backstop is hitting .281/.310/.514 with 21 long balls and 66 RBI on the season.

Whit Merrifield went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base as the Royals topped the Rockies on Tuesday.

Merrifield manufactured a run by himself in the first inning. After a leadoff single, he stole second base, advanced to third on a ground ball then scampered home on a passed ball. He has been one of the biggest surprises in the league this season, slashing .282/.319/.458 with 14 homers, 56 RBI and 23 stolen bases.

Scott Alexander secured the first save of his big league career in Tuesday's victory over the Rockies.

Kelvin Hererra started the ninth inning with a one-run advantage, but got into a world of trouble after retiring the first two hitters. He allowed a triple to Jonathan Lucroy, then walked Carlos Gonzalez and Gerardo Parra on a combined nine pitches. He then fell behind 2-0 to Alexi Amarista when manager Ned Yost decided he had seen enough. Alexander came on and got him on a fielder's choice, ending the game.

Danny Duffy racked up seven strikeouts over six innings of two-run ball in Tuesday's victory over the Rockies.

The left-hander allowed just one hit and three walks on the night. The only damage against him came on a mighty two-run blast from Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning. It was a nice bounce-back effort from Duffy who had struggled in his three previous starts. He now sports a 3.78 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 116/36 K/BB ratio across 131 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the division-rival Indians in Cleveland on Sunday.

Nolan Arenado blasted his 28th home run of the season as the Rockies fell to the Royals on Tuesday night in Kansas City.

Arenado got the Rockies on the board with a two-run blast off of Danny Duffy in the sixth inning, but that proved to be the extent of their offense in the ballgame. He finished the night 1-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .312/.367/.596 with 28 long balls and 107 RBI.

Jon Gray pitched well in a losing effort against the Royals on Tuesday, surrendering three runs (two earned) on six hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Gray punched out six on the night while issuing only one walk. The Royals scored a run on a passed ball in the first inning, then tacked on a pair in the fourth that proved to be the difference. Now 5-3 on the season, Gray will carry a 4.54 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into Sunday's start against the Braves in Atlanta.

Clayton Richard was hurt by the home run ball Tuesday in St. Louis, serving up three in a no-decision in the Padres' 12-4 win.

Richard cruised through the first three innings, but Jedd Gyorko swatted a two-out, two-run homer and then Stephen Piscotty went back-to-back with a blast of his own. The lefty then served up a game-tying dinger to Yadier Molina in the sixth and was lifted. Richard has been victimized often by homer this season, but he actually entered Tuesday’s outing having not given up any in his previous three starts. He’ll get the Marlins in Miami on Sunday.

Lance Lynn gave up four runs over six innings of work in Tuesday’s no-decision versus the Padres.

Lynn got in trouble in the third inning when he hit pitcher Clayton Richard with a pitch to lead off the frame. He also hit Jose Pirela with a pitch following a single and Yangervis Solarte then cleared the bases with a double. Solarte got Lynn again in the fifth with another RBI two-bagger. Remarkably, it’s the first time since June that Lynn has allowed more than two runs in a start. He’ll face the Rays at home Sunday.
