Perfumed Perez making good scents for Royals
The upbeat All-Star catcher for the Kansas City Royals wore Victoria's Secret perfume late in the 2013 season — teammate Alcides Escobar sprayed some on him, and Perez had a four-hit game.
Perez said San Francisco's Pablo Sandoval, Detroit's Victor Martinez and Texas' Prince Fielder are among the players who have remarked about his baseball bouquet.
Yost never wants to see his hitters take an oh-fer-4 at the plate.
Perez was a 16-year-old free agent in Venezuela when he signed with the Royals in 2006.
Perez homered to drive in Kansas City's run in its 7-1 opening loss to San Francisco, then hit a two-run double for a 5-2, sixth-inning lead as the Royals won the second game 7-2 on Wednesday night.
Perez scored moments later and got into a dustup with Giants reliever Hunter Strickland at home plate.
The Michigan appeals court says workers can qualify for unemployment pay if they're fired for using medical marijuana.
The attorney general's office claims the law protects people from criminal prosecutions, not from adverse rulings in civil disputes such as jobless pay.
The Magic played under slightly dampened spirits following news Friday that second-year guard Victor Oladipo would have surgery Saturday for a facial fracture he sustained after catching an inadvertent elbow in practice Thursday.
Oladipo had already missed the entire preseason with a sprained right medial collateral ligament and remains out indefinitely.
A night after resting the top seven players in his rotation at New Orleans, Dallas coach Rick Carlisle went with his projected opening night starting five of Parsons, Nowitzki, Tyson Chandler, Monta Ellis and Jameer Nelson on Friday.
Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said he has yet to settle on his starting five for the regular season opener, but acknowledged that preseason injuries have left things fluid in the interim.
Pittsburgh can bring the jumbled ACC Coastal Division into slightly better focus on Saturday against Georgia Tech.
Or the Yellow Jackets can snap a two-game losing streak and turn an already murky division race into something borderline unrecognizable.
Pitt resurrected its season with a rousing 21-16 triumph over Virginia Tech last week, ending a three-game skid behind quarterback Chad Voytik.
The sophomore ran for 118 yards, passed for 92 more and even caught the first pass of his college career as the Panthers (4-3, 2-1) jumped out early and held on.
Losses to Duke and North Carolina followed, the latter a 48-43 shootout in which the Tar Heels drove 75 yards to score the game-winning touchdown with 12 seconds left.
Suddenly, all of Georgia Tech's early season momentum has vanished thanks to a defense that is allowing 6.79 yards per play.
The senior had 11 tackles, six of them for loss, to go with a sack and two forced fumbles in a performance that may have been his best in a year in which he won every major award for a player at his position.
The Panthers unveiled a new wrinkle in their offense against the Hokies, when they ran a lot of quarterback read options that gave Voytik the choice of handing it to James Conner or taking off.
The Panthers handed Georgia Tech its only loss in 1918 and beat the Yellow Jackets (then the Golden Tornado) on three straight visits to the Steel City.
