Why Billy Butler should not have been thrown out at third base

In the bottom of the sixth inning Alex Gordon came to the plate with one down, Salvador Perez on second base and Billy Butler on first. Gordon hit a fly ball to left field and the ball sliced toward the foul line. Juan Perez gave chase, dove, but missed making the catch and the ball rolled into the left field corner. Salvador Perez scored and somehow, Billy Butler got thrown out at third base.
