SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Juan Nicasio pitched four scoreless innings, Kyle Parker drove in five runs and the Colorado Rockies beat the Kansas City Royals 10-1 on Sunday.

Nicasio allowed one hit, struck out three and walked one.

Parker, a former Clemson quarterback who was selected by the Rockies in the first round of the 2010 draft, hit a two-run double in the seventh off Royals closer Greg Holland. He added a bases-clearing double in the Rockies' four-run ninth.

The Rockies' 14-hit attack included a two-run single for Wilin Rosario in the first. Paul Janish went 3 for 3 and Corey Dickerson homered in the sixth.

The Royals have lost three straight and are 0-3-1 in their past four games.
