SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) – Dan Haren pitched four effective innings, and the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Kansas City Royals 7-5 Tuesday.
Haren yielded seven singles, walked one and struck out one.
Noel Cuevas hit a three run homer in the ninth and Scott Van Slyke a two run drive in the eighth.
Justin Maxwell went 3 for 5 for the Royals, including a two run single in the eighth.
Royals left hander Jason Vargas allowed a run on four hits in four innings, the first run off him in nine innings over three starts.
The Dodgers loaded the bases in the fourth off Vargas, but came away empty when A.J. Ellis hit a fly ball to center field to end the threat.
