Royals' Danny Duffy: Strikes out 10 in win over Yankees

Duffy (3-3) tossed seven scoreless innings in Thursday's win over the Yankees, allowing three hits and two walks with 10 strikeouts.

Duffy had it all working in this one and retired the first nine batters he faced before Jacoby Ellsbury reached on a bunt single that was initially ruled an out. Just three men reached second base during his time on the mound and he racked up 10 punchouts for the first time in 2017 after doing so on three occasions last year. Duffy allowed six runs in back-to-back starts against the White Sox a couple of weeks ago, but he has since bounced back with three consecutive quality starts to lower his ERA back down to 2.97. He has an 18:5 K:BB over 20.2 innings in that stretch and will look to keep it rolling Tuesday against this same Yankees lineup.
