Billy Butler finally goes for extra bases
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Royals first baseman Billy Butler told MLB.com before Saturday's game he has been feeling better at the plate recently. He went out and proved it in the game, as he picked up his first extra-base hit of the season in a 5-4 win over the Twins.

Butler went 2 for 4 to extend his hitting streak to four games. He clubbed a double and scored a run in the game, told reporters he is where he wants to be at the plate after opening the season with an extended cold streak.

"That's where I need to stay. That's what got me to this point," Butler said. "That's where I need to stay and that's what I'm going to do. Got to stay there."  

Even after picking up two hits, Butler is hitting just .193/.273/.211 in 57 at-bats. He hit .289 with 41 extra-base hits a year ago.
