--C Brayan Pena, who has a five-game hitting streak, has homered in back-to-back games. After hitting a three-run homer in the 14th inning Friday, Pena hit another three-run homer Sunday in the fourth inning.

--LHP Danny Duffy is still looking for his first big league victory, but in his past two starts he has left with a lead, only to watch the bullpen unable to hold it. Duffy allowed three runs on five hits in six-plus innings Sunday at Texas.

--RHP Sean O'Sullivan is bothered by biceps tendinitis, but manager Ned Yost said it is not serious. O'Sullivan is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Angels.

--RHP Aaron Crow's ERA nearly doubled Sunday when he gave up a two-run homer to Michael Young in the eighth. Crow had been scored only once in his prior outings before Young's home run. Crow's ERA jumped from 0.70 to 1.33.

--RF Alex Gordon went 0-for-5 Sunday and hitless in his final nine at-bats at Texas. The Royals have lost eight of 11 games since manager Ned Yost moved Gordon to batting leadoff.
