Chacin's two-seamer wasn't a complete meatball, but it came right over the heart of the plate and Perez crushed it. Cain capped Kansas City's highest-scoring inning since a 10-run first against the Cleveland Indians on August 23, 2006, hitting his slam off a 97-mph fastball from Jose Valdez.

The former prime minister of Finland, Alexander Stubb, tweeted , "Looks like we might need a time-out in the #Brexit negotiations".
