Perez plays ball off Choo's nose to help Duffy, KC top Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Danny Duffy didn't need much help Thursday night. Still, he and catcher Salvador Perez got a nifty assist from Shin-Soo Choo's face.

Duffy took a shutout into the eighth inning after Perez threw out a baserunner on a ball that hit Choo in the nose, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Texas Rangers 8-2 for their season-best third straight victory.

Perez had four RBIs on a pair of two-run singles with two outs, first in the fifth and then the seventh innings. But the catcher's caught stealing in the first inning was more memorable.
