Perkins was able to keep the game tied at 2, as he struck out Marcus Semien to end the inning.

"I always said if I get beat, I want them to hit a ball in the gap or hit a home run," Perkins said, per MLB.com. "But I put myself in that spot and I didn't work my way out this time. It was bound to happen. I've said all along I'm going to blow a save. I'm going to blow more than one. I've got to be able to bounce back. I'd love nothing more than to get the ball tomorrow and win a series."
