Player Notes
Billy Butler went 2-for-3 with two RBI, driving in the game-winning run as the Royals bested the Giants 7-2 in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

Advice: Butler delivered two of the game's biggest hits, swatting an RBI single in the first inning to get the Royals on the board and roping a single over Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford in the sixth that gave the Royals a 3-2 lead. They wouldn't look back, putting up four more runs in the inning en route to the five-run win. Once in danger of losing his starting job, Country Breakfast has come up big time and again this postseason. Going to a National League park for three games Butler may have trouble finding at-bats, but he'll likely be the first man off the bench for manager Ned Yost in pinch-hitting spots.
