Duffy permitted two runs -- one earned -- on five hits and three walks while striking out six over 6 2/3 innings. He will make his next start Saturday in New York against the Yankees.

Ventura (11-9) was scratched from his previous scheduled start with a back issue but pitched to form Monday, striking out plenty of batters while also issuing plenty of walks. He owns a 3.38 ERA and 132:57 K:BB ratio in 152 innings. Ventura is scheduled to face the Yankees Sunday.

News
Royals closer Greg Holland secured his 41st save Monday, striking out two during a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 4-3 win over the Rangers.

Holland's save was his first since Aug. 22, and he's been used in nonsave situations in each of his last four outings. Monday's save makes it three straight days and five of six days in which he's pitched, so Holland is likely to be unavailable Tuesday. He owns a 1.63 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 78:18 K:BB ratio in 55 1/3 innings.
