A Question About Billy Butler's Home-Road Splits

I was looking at his numbers after seeing Justin's piece on Butler this morning.

The big question: Can anyone explain why Butler hits so many more homers in Kansas City even though the park isn't exactly kind to homers?

A distribution of his hits, home and road:

HOME

315 hits

206 singles (65.4%)

74 doubles (23.5%) - RHH 2B Park Factor: 106

1 triple (0.00%)

34 homers (10.8%) RHH 2B Park Factor: 85

ROAD

275 hits

185 singles (67.3%)

67 doubles (24.4%)

2 triples (0.1%)

21 homers (7.6%)



Does anyone have any idea why Butler is hitting so many more home runs at home than on the road, given the park's park factor?
