Royals host Mariners, await historic home run

Kansas City Royals manager Mike Matheny grew up in Ohio, followed the Cincinnati Reds and admired their Hall of Fame catcher, Johnny Bench.

A major-league catcher for 13 years himself, Matheny knows he's watching a special season from his own catcher, Salvador Perez, who is tied with Bench for the most home runs in a season by a catcher with 45.

Perez could break the record Sunday when the Royals (67-81) host the Seattle Mariners (79-69) in the final game of their three-game series.
