Drew Butera hit his first home run of the season in Sunday's win over the Rangers.
Butera showed some pop in the second inning, smacking a Cole Hamels fastball over the right field wall for his first homer in 25 games this year. Most of those games came when starter Salvador Perez was sidelined, and Butera has lately been relegated to the occasional start when Perez is resting or serving as the team's designated hitter. The 34-year-old is hitting .181/.277/.278 overall. May 27 - 6:58 PM
