Billy Butler’s mistake opens door to Oakland onslaught in 8-3 Royals loss

The best teams do not let gaffes go unpunished. The Oakland Athletics are the class of the American League. After Billy Butler flubbed fielding Jonny Gomes’ fifth-inning pop-up, the A’s lineup unloaded for eight runs on Jason Vargas and Aaron Crow. Oakland batted around in the inning and batted aside the Royals in the process on their way to a 8-3 win.
