    Milwaukee 9, Kansas City 6

    SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Carlos Lee hit two home runs and drove in five runs in the Milwaukee Brewers' 9-6 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.

    Both of Lee's home runs came off right-hander Zack Greinke. Lee connected in the first with Prince Fielder aboard. In the second, he homered deep to left with Rickie Weeks and Fielder on base.

    "I'm not trying to do anything special," Lee said. "I'm just going to be myself. Get good pitches to hit. Be selective. You can't go out there and try to hit home runs."

    The Brewers acquired Lee from the Chicago White Sox for outfielder Scott Podsednik and reliever Luis Vizcaino in an offseason trade.

    Lee has three home runs and nine RBI in three games, helping the Brewers start 4-0 in spring training.

    "I'm one of the guys who likes to swing every day," Lee said. "I'm comfortable with it."

    Fielder went 3-for-3 and drove in three runs. Brady Clark also went 3-for-3 with two doubles and a triple and scored three runs for the Brewers.

    Rick Helling, who spent all of last season in the minors, pitched two shutout innings to pick up the victory.

    Greinke allowed seven runs on seven hits, four for extra bases, to take the loss.

    "He was up in the strike zone," Royals manager Tony Pena said.

    Pena said he is glad to see Lee, who played the past six years for the Chicago White Sox, switch leagues. He hit five home runs off the Royals last year. His 19 career home runs against Kansas City are Lee's most against any team.

    "He kills us," Pena said.

    Mark Teahen, Terrence Long and Denny Hocking each had two hits for the Royals.

    Royals right-hander Kyle Snyder, who did not pitch last season after having shoulder surgery in February, threw two shutout innings and struck out two in his spring training debut.
