News
Royals left-hander Danny Duffy was solid in his outing against the Astros on Saturday. Duffy allowed one run on just three hits over six innings of work. He walked one and struck out three, needing 101 pitches to get through the sixth

Duffy kept the Astros off the board for the first five innings. But he allowed his only run in his final inning of work. The Royals were able to come back to tie it an inning later however, and they won the game 2-1 in walk-off fashion. 

Duffy, who did not get a decision on Saturday, is 2-1 with a 2.15 ERA over his last six starts, since returning from the disabled list.

"I started getting tired in the fourth, but my fastball had so much life and my slider had some bite," Duffy said, per MLB.com. "But yeah, that heat was what really got me. It was hot, man."

Royals starter Chris Young was bitten by the longball in his outing against the Cardinals on Thursday. The veteran right-hander allowed four runs in just three innings. He gave up five hits and a walk while striking out a batter, needing 68 pitches to get through the third.

Young, who drops to 8-6 on the year, was staked to an early 2-0 lead in this one. But a pair of two-run homers (Randal Grichuk in the second inning and Matt Carpenter in third) was Young's undoing in the 4-3 loss.

Young got off to a blazing start this season, posting a 2.11 ERA over his first eight starts. But things have gone down-hill since then. Over his last seven starts, he has a 5.50 ERA.
