    Kansas City 6, Milwaukee 4

    SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Steve Andrade, who was claimed earlier in the day off waivers, pitched a scoreless inning to get the win in Kansas City's 6-4 victory against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.

    Andrade, a rookie right-hander, walked the first batter he faced in the seventh before retiring three in a row.

    Andrade, who was placed on waivers by the San Diego Padres, is 13-8 with a 2.65 ERA in 188 minor league relief appearances. He was 3-2 with a 1.97 ERA last season with Double-A New Hampshire of the Eastern League.

    Aaron Guiel led off the bottom half of the seventh with a home run as Kansas City scored four times to take a 5-1 lead.

    Mike Sweeney, who was playing for the first time since March 9 because of a bone bruise in his left leg, contributed an RBI single in the seventh. Angel Berroa's two-out double scored Sweeney and Mark Teahen.

    Sweeney also had a RBI single in the eighth and went 2-for-5.

    Royals starter Denny Bautista gave up one run -- a home run to Prince Fielder in the second -- in six innings. He allowed six hits, walked three and struck out five.

    Brewers right-hander Dave Bush allowed one run in five innings. Bush gave up five hits, walked one and struck out four.

    Rickie Weeks hit a three-run homer in the eighth off Royals left-hander Andrew Sisco.

    Royals second baseman Mark Grudzielanek left after four innings after his right hand was stepped on. His injury will be re-evaluated on Wednesday. Esteban German replaced Grudzielanek and stole two bases. He leads the Cactus League with eight stolen bases in nine attempts.
