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.
