Liam Hendriks turns in strong start Wednesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Liam Hendriks turned in a strong start Wednesday against the Twins.

Hendriks allowed one run on four hits over seven innings. He struck out five and did not issue any walks during the outing. Hendriks was fantastic early, tossing four perfect innings before the Twins could pick up a hit. With two outs in the fifth, Trevor Plouffe managed to knock a double. Hendriks would escape the inning without giving up any runs. He wasn’t so fortunate in the seventh. After getting one out, Hendriks gave up a single and a run-scoring double to the next two hitters.

The Royals mounted a comeback, taking Hendriks off the hook. He didn’t factor into the decision. Hendriks will take on the Rangers in his next start.

Danny Duffy turns in strong start against Twins
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Danny Duffy turned in a strong start Tuesday against the Twins.

Duffy allowed one run on four hits over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out four and walked two during the outing. Duffy was fantastic to open the game, tossing six scoreless innings. He gave up his only run of the game during the seventh inning. Duffy gave up a double to open the frame, and then allowed a run-scoring single to Joe Mauer. The Royals couldn’t scratch any runs across with Ricky Nolasco on the mound, putting Duffy in line for the loss despite his strong start.

The Royals managed a comeback in the ninth inning, giving Duffy a no-decision. He’ll take on the Indians in his next start.
