SURPRISE, Arizona — Alex Gordon went 4 for 4 with a home run and a Kansas City Royals split squad beat the Milwaukee Brewers 7-5 Wednesday, March 9th.

A day after a swarm of bees caused a delay in the middle of the Rockies-Royals game at Surprise Stadium, some of the insects buzzed the ballpark about an hour before the first pitch. They soon flew away and there were no problems.

Gordon hit a tiebreaking home run leading off the sixth.

Eric Hosmer homered and Mike Moustakas had two-run double off Wily Peralta. Moustakas is 7 for 12 with four doubles and six RBIs this spring.

Royals closer Wade Davis, who had an 0.94 ERA in 69 relief appearances last year, pitched a spotless fourth, striking out one.

Hernan Perez homered for the Brewers.
