GOODYEAR, AZ. (AP) -- Billy Butler homered and drove in three runs Tuesday as the Kansas City Royals beat the Cleveland Indians 4-1.

Both teams began the day unbeaten in exhibition play. The Royals improved to 4-0-1, Cleveland lost for the first time in six tries.

Before the game, new Indians manager Terry Francona told Justin Masterson in the dugout that he would be his opening day starting pitcher in Toronto.

Wade Davis became the first rotation pitcher used this spring by Royals manager Ned Yost. Acquired with fellow right-hander James Shields from Tampa Bay this winter, Davis started and gave up one single over two innings.

Eric Hosmer added an RBI triple for Kansas City. Matt Carson hit his second home run for Cleveland.
