Moustakas is now on a season-high five-game hitting streak to raise his batting average to .200 for the first time this year. He is 7 for 18 during that stretch.

News
Royals pitcher Danny Duffy twirled a gem at home on Thursday against the Indians, but the bullpen was unable to maintain a slim lead, as he was unable to factor into the decision. The left-hander permitted two hits and two walks while striking out seven over seven shutout frames.

Over his last two starts covering 12 2/3 innings, Duffy has allowed only two earned runs. He owns a 2.47 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over 98 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Wednesday at home against Minnesota.

News
Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura picked up a no-decision Friday against the Indians. 

Ventura gave up four runs, three earned, on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one. Carlos Santana was the main culprit behind Ventura’s struggles. Santana belted a solo shot off Ventura in the fourth inning, and added a two-run shot in the sixth. Ventura pitched into the seventh inning, but was pulled after putting a man on. The runner would come around to score on a sac fly. The run was credited to Ventura.

The game was tied when Ventura left, giving him a no-decision. His next start will come against the Twins.

Guthrie (6-9) was hammered for all five runs in the second inning, but his offense was able to bail him out and save him from his fourth straight loss.
