GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Alex Gordon homered, Mike Moustakas stroked two doubles to raise his average to .579 and the Kansas City Royals beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-1 Sunday to remain undefeated in 10 games.

Wade Davis pitched three scoreless innings to run his string to five in two starts. He allowed two hits and struck out three in his second start.

Reds right-hander Homer Bailey struck out five and allowed one single in two innings, but the bullpen allowed 12 hits and eight runs.

The Royals are the only undefeated team in the major leagues this spring, improving to 9-0-1. The Royals got three consecutive pinch-hit singles from Christian Colon, Xavier Nady and Brandon Wood in a four-run sixth.
