Salvy Perez hit a grand slam with Miguel Cabrera's bat, then gave the cameraman a Gatorade bath
Going into the eighth inning of Wednesday's game against the Red Sox, the Royals were down 4-2 with the bases loaded and nobody out.
Three hits, four RBIs and one run in KC's 6-4 victory. Not a totally unusual game for an All-Star like Perez, but as we saw later in the broadcast, he did have a little help: The power of 453 homers, 2,575 hits, two MVPs and a Triple Crown. Yes,
Apparently, it's the first game he's used the piece of lumber and it was given by Cabrera to Royals backup catcher
So, the bat Salvy used was one Miguel Cabrera had given to Drew Butera earlier this year.— Jeffrey Flanagan (@FlannyMLB) June 21, 2017
He should probably keep using it, with Miggy getting 10 percent of any other dingers he hits. Salvy also ended the proceedings by giving the camerman a Gatorade shower. Baseball is fun.
