KANSAS CITY, Mo. Omer Asik Jersey . -- Billy Butler is hot at the plate and Kansas City Royals are even hotter. Butler homered and drove in three runs and right fielder Nori Aoki threw out two runners in the same inning as the Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 4-2 Friday night for their fifth straight victory. The Royals, who have not been in the playoffs since winning the 1985 World Series, hold a half game lead for the second AL wild card. They have won 13 of 16. Butler, who is hitting .423 in the past seven games, homered with two out in the first off Madison Bumgarner (13-9). In the past 13 games, Butler has four home runs and 11 RBIs. "Those are feeling really good," Butler said. "Bumgarner is one of the best pitchers in the National League and in baseball in general. I just caught one out front. He battled all night, throwing a complete game. We capitalized on a few mistakes and got some runs across." Said Bumgarner of Butlers homer, "It just caught a bit too much of the middle of the plate. Hes a good hitter." Butler singled home the go-ahead run in the two-run sixth, which was aided by throwing errors on Giants infielders Michael Morse and Matt Duffy. Alex Gordon had an RBI single. "Morse had more time than he thought," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Youd just like to get one out there. Duffy knew he came of the bag and was trying to get the out (at first)." The Giants scored twice in the third on Joaquin Arias double and Matt Duffys single. Aoki prevented a bigger inning, throwing out Hunter Pence at third and Arias at home. "You might get two in a game, but never two in an inning," Aoki said through a translator. The Giants out hit the Royals 12-7, but self-destructed with three errors and base running blunders. Bumgarner went the distance, allowing four runs on seven hits, while walking none and striking out five. His road scoreless streak was snapped at 17 innings. Jason Frasor (3-1), the second of five Royals pitchers, threw a spotless sixth, striking out two. Greg Holland pitched a flawless ninth for his American League-leading 33rd save in 35 opportunities. It was Hollands 100th career save. DeMarcus Cousins Jersey . Five years ago, Nestor and Zimonjic beat the American twins to win the title. But the Bryans, the worlds top-ranked team, needed 74 minutes to earn the victory Saturday as both Nestor and Zimonjic lost serve in the second set. Jrue Holiday Jersey . General Manager Sam Presti said the three-time All-Star had knee swelling that would not subside, and the procedure was intended to solve the problem. He said doctors determined that a loose stitch was to blame for the swelling, that Westbrooks lateral meniscus has healed properly and the procedure was successful. http://www.shoppelicansonline.com/Authentic-ETwaun-Moore-Pelicans-Jersey/ . Especially after he got ejected. "How many innings was that?" he wondered.SAO PAULO, Brazil -- A safety engineer at the World Cup stadium where a giant crane collapse killed two workers allegedly warned his supervisor of possible problems with the operation, only to have his concerns brushed aside, a labour union leader charged Thursday, as sniping over the accident heated up. The incident has fed worries about Brazils capacity to host next years showcase tournament, as well as the 2016 Olympics, though authorities insist they will be ready for both. Sao Paulos Arena Corinthians was slated to be completed by the end of December, and workers have suggested that speed was a top priority on the construction site, with many working 12-hour shifts and skipping vacations. The stadium was initially scheduled to be part of the Confederations Cup earlier this year, but world footballs governing body FIFA scrapped the venue from the warm-up tournament because of financing problems before construction even started. Antonio de Sousa Ramalho, president of Sao Paulos civil industry workers association, told The Associated Press in a phone interview that supervisors pressed ahead with the operation to finish the roof despite several rainy days that soaked the soil. He said the engineer warned his supervisor that it appeared the ground was not stable enough to support the 500-ton piece of roofing. "To his surprise, he was told by the supervisor that nothing was wrong and work should continue," said Ramalho, who declined to provide the workers name for fear of possible reprisals. "They discussed the matter for a while but in the end the supervisors decision stood." Odebrecht, the powerful Brazilian construction company behind the stadium project and three other World Cup venues, strongly denied the claims, and a civil defence official said an initial inspection of the construction site a day after the accident showed no evidence the ground was unstable. "Odebrecht and Sport Club Corinthians clarify that there was no warning previous to the accident," the statement said. The company added that Ramalhos union does not represent most of the workers involved in the crane operation. Following a visit to the site Thursday, the civil defence official in charge of the inspection said there were no obvious signs that the ground was unstable. "When we looked at it, it didnt seem like the ground shifted, maybe just a few millimeters," Jair Paca de Lima said in a television interview. "Maybe after an analysis with the equipment we will know more." According to Brazilian media reports, investigatoors are also looking into human or mechanical error as possible reasons for the collapse. Solomon Hill Jersey. Lima said only the area where the accident happened will remain closed, but work can resume at most of the stadium as soon as Monday, when a three-day mourning period ends. Constructors will be allowed to clear the crane and the metal structure after getting clearance from civil defence authorities, which is expected to happen soon. The labour ministry later Thursday said constructors were prohibited from using the other nine cranes at the site until they can show "safety measures are in place and there is no more risk of accidents." Ramalho, the union leader, said workers had been pulling long hours for quite some time in an effort to get the stadium completed on time, a point confirmed Thursday by loader Sergio Almeida, who told the AP typical shifts were 12 to 13 hours long. Besides the Sao Paulo stadium, Odebrecht was involved in construction of the Fonte Nova stadium in Salvador and the Arena Pernambuco in Recife, both of which were delivered for this years Confederations Cup. It also renovated Rio de Janeiros Maracana Stadium, which will host the World Cup final. A small part of the roof at Arena Fonte Nova collapsed in May from weight of accumulated water from heavy rainstorm. At the time, officials denied any structural problems with the project and blamed a mistake by a worker who inspected the roof. FIFA said earlier Thursday it was waiting to learn more about the extent of the damage from Wednesdays accident. FIFA officials and other global soccer personalities are due in Brazil next week for the high-profile World Cup draw in the resort city of Costa do Sauipe. FIFA leaders have said repeatedly that there is no Plan B for next years tournament -- particularly since nearly 1 million tickets to the matches have already been sold. "It is too premature to make any detailed assessment on the situation of the Corinthians Arena as we are still awaiting the technical report to be able to evaluate the scale of the damage," FIFA said in a statement sent to The Associated Press. "We will be able to provide an update earliest next week following the FIFA Organizing Committee of the FIFA World Cup." Jose Maria Marin, the president of the local World Cup organizing committee, said he lamented the accident but was confident it would not significantly affect the opener in Sao Paulo on June 12. "Im certain that the stadium will be ready for the start of the World Cup," he told Brazilian media.
