Brinson's walkoff HR lifts Rangers of Royals at Alamodome

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Lewis Brinson hit a three-run walkoff homer over the Alamodome's short porch in right field and the Texas Rangers beat the Kansas City Royals 7-5 on Friday night in a split-squad game.

Brinson homered over a fence 272 feet away at the reconfigured football stadium.

Kansas City's Salvador Perez also homered to right for his first home run of spring training. Perez was hitting .148 in nine previous games, but fouled off four pitches against Texas starter Derek Holland before looping a 1-2 pitch into the seats.

Rangers prospect Jared Hoying also homered to right, as did the Royals' Paul Orlando and Whit Merrifield.

The Rangers and Royals share a spring training complex in Surprise, Arizona, but traveled 1,000 miles south to play a pair of split-squad games in San Antonio.
