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.
