Reds fall to red-hot Royals

CINCINNATI (AP) - Streaking Salvador Perez had three more hits, including a homer and RBI double, Reds left-hander Wade Miley made another early exit, and the Kansas City Royals beat Cincinnati 5-4 for their fifth victory in six games.

The Royals’ offense has led the way during the surge. It scored one run at a time to keep it going, led by Perez’s homer, double and single. Trevor Rosenthal escaped a bases-loaded threat in the ninth.
