Error sinks Danny Duffy against Rockies
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy was hurt by an error Wednesday against the Rockies.

Duffy allowed five runs, one earned, on five hits over seven innings of work. He struck out six and walked one. Duffy was pitching well until the sixth inning. Up until that point, he had allowed just one run on three hits. Things looked promising to start the sixth, as Duffy quickly recorded the first two outs. He would have been out of the inning with no damage, but the third baseman's throwing error put a man on base. Duffy then loaded the bases on a single and walk. With the bases juiced, Duffy gave up a grand slam to Matt McBride.

With the loss, Duffy dropped to 8-11. He’ll take on the Twins in his next start.
