Ben Revere and Salvador Perez prove all problems can be solved with hugs

Revere hit with ball, Perez hugs it better

During the seventh inning of ALCS Game 2, something strange happened -- and no, we aren't talking about the Royals mounting yet another amazing comeback. A ball rebounded off the dirt in front of home plate and came around to hit Ben Revere on top of his head (don't worry -- he still had his helmet on). Poor Ben! Luckily, Salvador Perez was there to hug it better:


If two players on opposing teams can hug it out, what can't the world do? Cats and dogs can be friends! Croissants and donuts can exist in the same pastry! Are there any problems hugs can't solve?

Well, OK, not math problems. Hugs can't balance your checkbook or do algebra for you. However, the Royals defeated the Blue Jays, 6-3, before 8 p.m. ET on Saturday.

That means you have plenty of time to finish your homework or pay your bills like an adult before ALCS Game 3 on Monday at 7 p.m., on FOX Sports 1 and Sportsnet.
