Butler Leads Royals In Romp Of Diamondbacks
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Billy Butler doubled, drove in three runs and scored twice Monday, leading the Kansas City Royals in a 16-4 romp of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Non-roster invitees Max Ramirez and Adam Moore had back-to-back pinch-hit home runs in the fifth inning off Steve Garrison. Ramirez hit a grand slam and Moore followed with a monstrous drive to left for his second home run in five spring at-bats.
Diamondbacks starter Randall Delgado, who was acquired from Atlanta in the Justin Upton trade on Jan. 24, gave up five runs on six hits in the first inning.
Arizona also committed two errors in the first.
