Hosmer, Morales, Rios power Royals to 13-2 win over Rangers

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Eric Hosmer and Royals newcomers Kendrys Morales and Alex Rios hit consecutive first-inning homers, and AL champion Kansas City routed the Texas Rangers 13-2 on Wednesday in the spring training opener for both teams.

Hosmer hit a three-run shot off Rangers starter Colby Lewis that landed on the grassy berm well beyond the centerfield fence. Morales went deep to right field and Rios went to left, giving Kansas City a 6-0 lead before Lewis had even recorded an out.

The last time Kansas City hit three consecutive homers during the regular season was May 2006, when Tony Graffanino, Angel Berroa and Doug Mientkiewicz did it against Detroit.
