Chris Getz and Humberto Quintero also drove in runs for the
Royals, who overcame another lousy performance by their starting
pitcher to pick up a confidence-boosting win.
Daniel Bard (2-4) walked Jarrod Dyson and Alex Gordon to start
the eighth before giving way to reliever Matt Albers. His third
pitch to Butler was right in his wheelhouse, and the portly
designated hitter sent it soaring into the fountains beyond the
left-field wall.
It was Butler's sixth homer of the year.
Kelvin Herrera and Jose Mijares (2-1) had kept Kansas City in
the game after Danny Duffy lasted just 4 1-3 innings. Jonathan
Broxton worked the ninth for his sixth save.
