2B battle ongoing, Royals win again

-Royals improve to 15-2-1 with a 5-3 victory in Goodyear against the Indians.
-Jeremy Guthrie didn't have his best stuff, but found a way to give KC four innings. He allowed two runs on five hits, while walking and striking out a pair. He said afterward, "A good day to continue to get innings. I feel like I haven't really pitched in spring...Still trying to find a rhythm. I think it's because the outings are so spread out." Guthrie's last outing was rained out after a couple of innings. 

-Greg Holland allowed his second home run of spring. Ned Yost said "Hollie struggled a little bit, but we're in that time in spring training where we are starting to build arm strength with him."

-The battle at second base continues to go back and forth. Ned Yost told me before the game that defense is probably the most important trait for that position. Chris Getz and Johnny Giavotella were solid in the field, and both drove a run...or two. Getz hit an RBI double. Giavotella went 1-for-3 with an RBI double. 

-Lorenzo Cain and Salvador Perez both had two hits.

-Francisley Bueno threw two perfect innings. With the move of Luke Hochevar to the pen, the need for another lefty becomes clear. He and Donnie Joseph appear to be the favorites, but with Bueno's MLB experience from a season ago, he's probably the front-runner.
