SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Alex Gordon doubled twice and finished with three hits and four RBIs, Kila Ka'aihue had two doubles and three RBIs and the Kansas City Royals routed the San Francisco Giants 15-3 on Friday night.

Jeff Francoeur added a two-run homer for Kansas City, and Melky Cabrera was 2 for 3 to raise his Cactus League-leading average to .490.

Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner, who held the Texas Rangers to three hits in eight scoreless innings in the World Series, retired nine of the first 10 batters he faced, but gave up 10 hits, six of them for extra bases, and eight runs the next two innings.

Royals starter Vin Mazzaro allowed three runs on nine hits in four innings. The Giants loaded the bases with no outs in the second inning, but Mazaro escaped without allowing a run.
