Duffy Cools Off New York Bats, KC Avoids Sweep

Associated Press - May 19, 2017 1:17 am

Alex Gordon hit a go-ahead RBI single in the top of the ninth after Oakland tied it in the bottom of the eighth, and the Kansas City Royals beat the Athletics 7-6 on Wednesday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Danny Duffy tossed seven innings of three hit ball, Mike Moustakas hit a three run homer and the Kansas City Royals beat the New York Yankees 5-1 Thursday night to avoid a three game sweep.

Duffy (3-3) struck out a season best 10 while walking two and earning his first win since April 14, against the Angels. Duffy had been 0-3 with two no decisions in his last five starts.

Mike Minor handled the eighth before Kelvin Herrera surrendered a run in the ninth.

The Royals scored twice in the second off Jordan Montgomery (2-3) before Moustakas deposited his pitch into the bullpen in right in the fifth inning to break the game open.
