Photos: Royals open spring slate
The Royals opened with a 4-2 “road” win over Texas on Sunday. The same two teams play again at Surprise Stadium on Monday, starting at 2:05 Central. Listen in on MLB Gameday Audio on royals.com. Let’s take a look at the photos:
Billy Butler drove in a pair with a single in the first.
Starter Kyle Davies struck out three over a pair of scoreless innings.
Bruce Chen followed Davies with two shutout frames.
Jeff Francoeur hit a long home run against his former club.
And…here’s a look at a delivery from hard-throwing Tim Collins. The 5’7″ lefty fanned two in a scoreless inning.
