Billy Butler homers, drives in three runs Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals first baseman Billy Butler went 2 for 3 with a home run and three RBI in his team's 4-2 win over the Giants Friday.

Butler began the game with a monster two-run, first-inning home run to left field that traveled an estimated 437 feet. He then broke a 2-2 tie with his RBI single in the sixth. Butler has gone 11 for 19 in his last five games, boosting his line to .279/.328/.389 with seven home runs and 47 RBI in 409 at-bats.

Billy Butler falls triple short of cycle in Tuesday rout
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Embattled Royals first baseman Billy Butler continued to emerge from a slump Tuesday night with an offensive explosion in Arizona.

Butler singled in the third, slammed a three-run homer in the fifth, singled in the sixth and doubled and scored in the ninth. He has seven hits in his last two games after suffering through a 1-for-17 slide. It was his first four-hit game since he smacked five hits on Sept. 5 against Seattle.

Billy Butler back in funk and back on bench
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ned Yost said after Billy Butler tore it up against Cleveland last weekend that the designated hitter would be in the lineup for the Royals as long as he continued to hit.

Well, Butler did not continue to hit this week and is out of the lineup for the Thursday night game against Minnesota. Butler is hitless in the first two games of the series. His stat line sits at a mediocre .271/.323/.366.

Ned Yost: Billy Butler is our DH if he continues to hit
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals designated hitter Billy Butler is still under the miscroscope despite his recent surge. He must keep hitting to remain a starter.

"If Billy keeps hitting, Billy's going to DH," Ned Yost told the Kansas City Star.

Butler played the role of hero in the weekend series against Cleveland with six hits, including two home runs, and five RBI to help his team win three of four. But he took the collar Tuesday night.
