KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Salvador Perez became only the fourth Kansas City player with consecutive multi-homer games and Jarrod Dyson scored the tiebreaking run in the seventh inning when centerfielder Gilberto Celestino made a pair of errors on a simple fly ball, helping the Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 6-5.

Perez hit a 456-foot solo homer in the first and another solo and drive that just cleared the wall in the fifth off JA Happ.

With the score 5-5 in the seventh, Jarrod Dyson scored from first when Celestino dropped the ball and followed with an errant throw.
