SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Matt Brown went 6-for-6 with two home runs. He wasn't the only batter to have a good day.
The Angels and Royals combined for 15 home runs and 40 hits Sunday in Los Angeles' 18-12 win.
With wind gusting up to 36 mph, Juan Rivera homered and drove in four runs, and Mike Napoli had three hits, including a home run. Brandon Wood, Robb Quinlan, Jeff Mathis and Ryan Budde also homered for the Angels.
"It was not good pitcher's weather," Angels starter John Lackey said. "It was a good day to hit."
Lackey, the Angels' scheduled Opening Day starter, allowed two runs in the first four innings, giving up solo homers by Shealy and Olivo. He allowed all six batters he faced in the fifth to reach, and five of them scored.
"When I made good pitches, the wind didn't matter," Lackey said. "It was when I didn't make good pitches I got hurt. The wind didn't help, but I wasn't making good pitches at the end, either. I got a little tired in the fifth. I got to my 90 pitches. I pushed through it."
Kansas City's Horacio Ramirez lasted only two innings and faced 18 batters, nine on whom scored. He gave up 10 hits, including three homers, and walked two.
"There wouldn't have been 15 home runs had it not been for the wind, so you do take it into consideration," Royals manager Trey Hillman said. "Even some of the low pitches went out of the ball park. We didn't pitch well. They outhomered us, outhit us and outscored us. Horacio really scuffled with location."
Ramirez is 1-2 with a 10.29 ERA in five spring training outings.
"A couple of those might have been wind-blown but, for the most part, I think I just made bad pitches," Ramirez said. "It wasn't a great day. It felt like if I made a great pitch, it was a blooper or it went through the hole. If I made a real bad pitch, it was a double or a home run. So I didn't have a good day."
Royals 3B Alex Gordon was held out of the lineup for the second straight game because of tightness in his lower right hamstring. ... The Royals assigned RHPs Yasuhiko Yabuta and Oscar Villarreal, OF Chris Lubanski and C J.R. House to the minor league camp.
