DUFFY! Not the most ideal matchups across the board here and already in the hole.

Duffy doing his usual wild but unhittable thing.

1-0 in the 4th thanks to a Hosmer HR.

Hopefully Duffy can get through 5-6 innings, and give the bullpen a chance to hold it down.

Duffy with a no-no through 5.

Looking sharp.

He reminds me of a slightly younger Gio Gonzalez.

Gonzalez at 24 was very wild...but has tempered that to a respectable level now at 27....which has turned him into an all-star.

Hopefully Duffy learns to harness that control slightly to take that next step, because he's certainly got the stuff to be a big-time pitcher.

Duffy loses the no-hitter to Cabrera in the 6th (no surprise there- he's ya know, awesome), but it's probably for the best.

Now Ned can go to the pen in the 7th without any hesitation.

Great job by Duffy though....fantastic performance.

6 innings of 1 hit ball from Duffy, broken up only by a lousy infield single, against perhaps the best lineup in baseball. Walked three and struck out three. Not incredibly efficient. Not always pretty. But a damn good start, especially for a guy making his second start in the majors this year and coming off TJ.

Leadoff double by Maxwell, Bonifacio fails to get the bunt down,then ends up with hitting a ground rule double.

2-0

Nice little break there.

Great to see new pickups Maxwell and Bonifacio string together doubles to take the lead to 2-0.

Also--can the Royals get Duffy another start in the minors and then get Getz off the roster to call him up permanently. Mendoza to AAA (if possible). Davis to the pen.

I'm pretty resigned to the fact Getz will probably be on the roster all season, but I am hoping for when Moose gets back, that Bonifacio starts getting the everyday reps at 2B.

I am too. But I can wish, right? If Bonifacio shows anything in this series, he should be the the starting 2B. Even if he sucks, he should be. He isn't a defensive liability and he is certainly a better (relative term) hitter than Getz.

Holland vs:

Cabrera
Fielder
Martinez

This should be fun. The best against the best.

BIG win. Stealing one against Verlander softens the blow from missing a golden opportunity to get a W against Fernandez the other night.

The lost series v. Miami still sucks. But if Shields is on his game tonight and the Royals take both games today, that will be huge. Then all they need is one more and the series is a success.
