Billy Butler hit a pinch-hit two-run home run in the eighth inning, breaking up a tied ballgame to give the Royals a 6-4 win over the Indians.
Butler made the most of is only at-bat on Friday night, as he blasted a two-run home run that would eventually be enough for the Royals to pull away from the Indians. Although it was nice to see Butler go yard, odds are he wasn't in many starting lineups as his struggles at the plate continue, with Friday's homer being just his fourth of the season. He has managed a decent slash line despite his deficiencies, owning a .266/.320/.353, but a 91.3 AB/HR is just inexcusable. Unless he finds his power as we get into the heat of the summer, he should remain bench, if owned at all.
