Gabe Kapler homer increases count to 7,331

Oliver Perez hit his first batter, then gave up a two-run homer to the Milwaukee Brewers’ Gabe Kapler (no “Welcome Back Kotter” jokes please) on Sunday to put himself in an early two-run hole and add another game to our count. (We’re now at 7,331 games.)

Kapler, who last year was managing the Greenville Drive (Red Sox, Class A), also doubled twice for the Brewers, driving in a total of 3 runs to help Milwaukee beat the New York Mets 9-7.

Perez, who hadn’t given up a single earned run in 11 2/3 innings of work before Sunday, yielded 6 earned runs over just 4 2/3 innings against the Brewers.
