Billy Butler hit a pinch-hit go-ahead two-run homer in a 6-4 win over the Indians on Friday night.

The clutch blast came with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was just his fourth home run of the season. While the 28-year-old played the role of hero for the Royals on this night, he's been one of the game's most disappointing players with a weak .266/.320/.353 batting line.

Aaron Crow worked a scoreless ninth inning Friday against the Indians for his second save of the season.

Crow worked around a one-out leadoff double from Yan Gomes to finish off the win. Greg Holland was unavailable Friday after pitching the previous three days, but he should be good to go for Saturday.

Yordano Ventura took a no-decision Friday after yielding four runs (three earned) over 6 1/3 innings against the Indians.

After being knocked around for six runs over 4 1/3 innings last time out, Ventura showed some signs of progress in this one, allowing six hits against one walk and seven strikeouts. An error by Mike Moustakas in the seventh inning eventually allowed the tying run to score. The seven strikeouts from Ventura was his most since May 15. That's nice to see after he didn't strike out one batter in his last outing. He'll bring a 3.63 ERA into a start against the Twins next week.

Josh Tomlin allowed four runs (three earned) over 5 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Royals.

Tomlin gave up seven hits (including two home runs) while walking none and striking out five. He has now allowed 16 home runs in 86 2/3 innings of work and has just one win over his last eight starts. He's no sure thing to keep a rotation spot once Justin Masterson comes back from the DL.

Salvador Perez went 3-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored Friday against the Indians.

Perez already has 12 home runs through 92 games this season. The 24-year-old appears primed to blow away his career-high of 13, which he set last season over 138 games. He's currently on pace to finish below 79 RBI he had last year -- he's currently at 38 -- so the increase in power has been a decent trade-off for fantasy owners.

Carlos Santana clubbed two homers and knocked in three runs in a loss to the Royals on Friday.

Santana popped a solo blast in the fourth inning and added a two-run shot for good measure in the sixth. With three multi-hit games in his last four, his batting average is now up to .222 for the year, his high-water mark since early April. He's also up to 17 home runs and 45 RBI on the year.

Lucas Duda delivered a go-ahead two-run homer in a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Friday.

The Mets entered the top of the ninth inning down 3-0, but David Wright knocked in the first run with an RBI single and Duda followed with a long blast to right-center field. The 28-year-old has now gone deep three times in his last four games and is up to 17 home runs and 53 RBI on the year. It looks like the Mets made the right choice between him and Ike Davis.

Jenrry Mejia tossed a scoreless ninth inning against the Brewers on Friday for his 14th save of the season.

Mejia put himself in some early trouble with a leadoff walk to Jonathan Lucroy, but he secured the victory by striking out the next three batters he faced. The 24-year-old owns a 2.03 ERA and 33/13 K/BB ratio in 31 innings since moving to the bullpen. He's 14-for-16 in save chances.
