Salvador Perez went 1-3 with a home run in the Royals' 7-1 loss to the Giants during Game 1 of the World Series.
Perez provided the Royals with their lone run during Game 1, but other than that, the Royals' offense was utterly stagnant. Even after Tuesday's performance, Perez has been down right brutal in the playoffs, batting just .135 with nine strikeouts over 37 at-bats. Hopefully the home run that he hit off of Madison Bumgarner is the spark he needs, but given his recent performance, I wouldn't count on it.
