      A's DH Billy Butler goes yard in win over Giants on Friday

      Athletics designated hitter Billy Butler went 1 for 3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 5-4 win over the Giants on Friday. It's been a down season for the Athletics designated hitter, but he showed up on Friday. While Butler does have a hit in 10 of 12 games, nine of them have been a single hit effort.

      Athletics DH Billy Butler stays hot with three-hit Tuesday

      Athletics veteran Billy Butler remained on a roll Tueday night, going 3 for 6 with three RBI. After a brutal first five months to the season, Butler has caught fire in September, hitting .388 with a 1.106 OPS in 49 at-bats. Understandably, many owners grew frustrated and dropped Butler, but he could be a nice free agent add to try and ride the hot streak for the stretch run.
