GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Kila Ka’aihue and Alcides Escobar hit two-run home runs and Alex Gordon doubled for his fourth straight game with an extra-base hit in Kansas City’s 5-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday night.
Kanas City starter Mike Montgomery gave up one run with two hits and a walk. He struck out three in four innings.
Bronson Arroyo pitched five innings. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including a long two-run home run by Ka’aihue. He struck out three. Arroyo had limited activity the last four days because of illness.
Escobar’s home run came off Jose Arrendondo, who is coming back from elbow surgery after missing the 2010 season.
