by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/26/2015) Royals pitcher Danny Duffy missed a quality start by one out on Tuesday, but he still picked up his seventh win of the season in the 3-2 victory over the Orioles. Duffy went 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He walked two and struck out five, throwing 59 of his 91 pitches for strikes.

The left-hander is now 3-1 with a 3.67 ERA over his last five outings.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Duffy (6-6, 4.18 ERA) allowed an early first-inning run before struggling through a three-run third inning. He has now given up five runs in two of his last five starts.


Danny Duffy wins second straight for Royals


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2015) Royals starter Danny Duffy earned a win over the Angels on Friday, moving to 6-5 on the year. 

Duffy moved to 2-0 in August and has allowed five runs in 16 1/3 innings this month, for a 2.76 ERA. 

Duffy allowed on run on five hits over six innings, the eighth time in the last nine starts he's lasted at least six. 

"I thought Duffy did a great job," manager Ned Yost said, per MLB.com. "That's a scary lineup over there. They've got a lot of power. They can hit. Duff did a great job of getting us through six with one-run ball. Kept us in the ball game. He pitched real effectively in, even though he hit three hitters. ... Just did a good job of keeping them off balance with breaking ball and changeup."


Royals SP Danny Duffy blows early lead in no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2015) Royals starter Danny Duffy received a quick three-spot Sunday and gave it away. Then he gave away any chance he had of pushing his record above .500 by getting knocked out by the White Sox in the fourth.

Duffy couldn't stand prosperity. He allowed three runs on four hits in 3 1/3 innings with one walk and two strikeouts.

His demise was rapid after retiring the first six batters he faced. A walk, hit-by-pitch and run-scoring singles by Gordon Beckham and Alexei Ramirez turned his lead into a tie. He was removed from the game after giving up successive singles in the fourth.

Ned Yost stated his belief that the heat got to Duffy on Sunday. He told 610 Sports Radio that Duffy is a "heavy sweater."

The poor performance was his second in the last three outings, which followed four straight strong ones. His ERA on the year has risen to 4.19.
