Another of the Royals' Venezuelan iron men, catcher Salvador Perez, played his 146th game behind the plate Sunday. That broke the team record of 145 by Darrell Porter (1978).
Perez also became the first Major Leaguer to catch 146 games since 2008, when the Brewers' Jason Kendall and the Dodgers' Russell Martin each caught 149.
