SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Eric Hosmer and Salvador Perez each homered off Johnny Cueto and drove in three runs, helping the Kansas City Royals beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-5 Tuesday.

Hosmer hit a three-run homer as the Royals batted around in a five-run third that included consecutive triples by Billy Butler and Alex Gordon. Perez went 3 for 3, with a home run in the second, RBI double in the third and a run-scoring single in the fifth.

Ryan Ludwick and Todd Frazier hit for back-to-back homers as the Reds batted in a four-run first off left-hander Danny Duffy. The Royals committed two errors in the inning, and Duffy had a wild pitch and hit a batter.
