    Seattle's Stefen Romero hits a grand slam against the Kansas City Royals during the fourth inning of Thursday's Cactus League game in Surprise, Ariz. Romero finished with two home runs and seven RBI.

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Felix Hernandez allowed one run and two hits over two innings in his spring-training debut and Stefen Romero homered twice and drove in seven runs and a Seattle Mariners split-squad pounded Kansas City 12-2 on Thursday, ending the Royals' 11-game winning streak.

Romero, an infielder, finished 4-for-5. He had a grand slam in the fourth inning and a three-run shot in the ninth.
Casper Wells hit a three-run homer in the eighth. The Mariners have 10 consecutive multi-homer games and top the majors with 29 home runs.
Hisashi Iwakuma allowed one hit in three scoreless innings for the victory.
