Gordon homers, Davis sharp on mound for Royals
KANSAS CITY 8, CINCINNATI 1

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Alex Gordon insists his swing still needs
refining even though his spring training statistics indicate it
is just fine.



Gordon homered, Mike Moustakas stroked two doubles to raise his
average to .579 and the Kansas City Royals beat the Cincinnati
Reds 8-1 Sunday to remain undefeated in 10 spring training
games.



Gordon is hitting .500, but the home run to right-center off
Tony Cingrani was his first extra-base hit.



"I was taking a lot of pitches early on," Gordon said. "I just
decided if I get a first pitch fastball I was going to go after
it, and I put a pretty good swing on it. It feels good to get a
good swing.



"I really haven't been swinging it too well even though my
numbers might show it, but I really haven't felt that good,"
Gordon added. "That definitely felt better to have a result like
that."



Gordon, who has won back-to-back Gold Gloves, led the majors
with 51 doubles last season.



"Results do matter, but every spring training stats are always a
little bit higher than they should be," Gordon said. "So it's
just about feeling good and feeling comfortable and that's where
I'm trying to get. I'm not there yet. We still have a month
left, so I'll just keep going at it."



The Royals improved to 9-0-1, the only undefeated team in the
majors this spring.



"That's pretty impressive," Gordon said. "We might as well go
out and try to win a game and that's what we're doing. Hopefully
we can continue it and carry that over."



Moustakas doubled in the fourth and scored on Max Ramirez's
single. Gordon led off the fifth with a single, stole second and
scored on Moustakas' one-out double.



Royals right-hander Wade Davis pitched three scoreless innings,
allowing two hits and striking out three. He has pitched five
scoreless innings in winning his first two starts.



"I'm throwing my changeup more," Davis said. "I probably threw
10 today and I had a couple of ground balls and some bad swings
on it. That's a good thing. I'm definitely encouraged by that."



The Royals got three consecutive pinch-hit singles from
Christian Colon, Xavier Nady and Brandon Wood in a four-run
sixth.



Reds starter right-hander Homer Bailey allowed one single in two
scoreless innings, logging five of his six outs by strikeout.



"It could be six out of six." Bailey said and laughed.
"Strikeouts kind of come and go. I don't worry about those too
much. I like outs. I still try to strike everybody out. If they
happen to put it in play in the first couple of pitches, I don't
quite get there.



"I'd like to have a few first pitch strikes, a couple of them
missed by a little bit," Bailey said. "But I guess overall,
pretty good. Other than that once we got into the at-bat, it
came back. I pitched well."



NOTES: Indians CF Shin-Soo Choo remains sidelined with a right
quadriceps strain, while C Ryan Hanigan missed his third
straight game with a left oblique irritation. . Royals INF
Elliot Johnson is expected to return Tuesday after missing four
games with a bruised knee. . Royals LHP Everett Teaford, who has
not pitched because of a sore shoulder, will throw batting
practice Tuesday. If all goes well, he could appear in a game
Friday. . The Royals, who led the majors with a .338 batting
average, struck out 10 times, nine of them in the first four
innings.
