Salvador Perez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run during Wednesday's 12-10 loss to the Athletics.

Fantasy Impact:

Perez is now within one of Johnny Bench's record of 45 home runs hit by a catcher, set in 1970. The All-Star back up is tied for second in the league with homers, batting .276 with 110 RBI as the season enters the final couple weeks. Career-highs in most counting stats have been achieved, though 31-year-old continues to continue this torrid pace.
