On the day before the All-Star break, the Kansas City Royals scored a first for this season. Until Sunday, the Royals were not able to beat the Detroit Tigers at home. They were 0-and-6 before Sunday’s 5-2 victory.
Royals designated hitter Bill knows how quick the season can turn.
“Nothing ever seems to be easy against them (the Tigers),” said Butler. “We can play as good baseball as we can. We were playing really good when we went into their place. I think that’s the way they feel right now.”
Only three weeks ago, the Royals took over first place. At the All-Star break, they’re behind Detroit by 6-and-a-half games in the American League Central.
