For the first time in four spring training meetings, Washington defeated the Royals, picking up a 5-1 win in Fort Myers.
Kansas City starter Bill Butler allowed four runs in the first, as he surrendered a walk, four singles, and one double. It was Butler’s only inning of work on the day. Reliever Don O’Riley did a nice job of keeping Kansas City in the game as he pitched four scoreless innings in relief, scattering four hits.
