Duffy beats Yanks for 2nd time in week as Royals win 6-2

The Yankees lost to the Royals, 6-2. Kansas City couldn't solve Yankees rookie starter Jordan Montgomery, as they scored their only run on a Lorenzo Cain solo shot in Montgomery's 6 2/3 innings. But then against Yankee relievers Adam Warren, Jonathan Holder and Chasen Shreve, Kansas City was even more homer happy. Each of the Yankee relievers gave up a homers, as Jorge Bonifacio, Whit Merrifield and Mike Moustakas all went deep.

Revisiting preseason questions: Royals

In mid-February, we wondered how the Royals' rotation would fare without the late Yordano Ventura. The group as a whole has come through, although K.C.'s bats have been quiet.

Who would say no? Dealing the Nationals a closer

Washington has a ninth-inning problem. We weighed trade options and found a solution that stands out. Now, it's your turn to decide if it works.

The Yankees failed to sweep the Royals as Danny Duffy shut them down. In the 5-1 loss, Yankees starter, Jordan Montgomery, struggled going five innings and allowing five runs. The Yankees are off to Tampa for three with the Rays this weekend.

This was Danny Duffy's second-best career start going by Game Score (82); he had 95 against the Rays on Aug. 1, 2016. He did this against a Yankees offense that entered tonight ranked second in the majors in both runs per game (5.92) and wOBA (.361).

Royals lefty Danny Duffy is mowing down the Yankees and doing it in pretty tidy fashion. He had another scoreless inning and it is 2-0 Royals in the 5th. That is significant because there is rain in the forecast so the game is official.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Not only was Chris Herrmann's 11th-inning dinger a walk-off, but it was the longest in MLB on Wednesday. Jackie Bradley Jr., a pair of Royals and Tyler Collins round out the top five.
