Mike Moustakas clubbed a three-run homer, left-hander Danny Duffy tossed seven shutout innings and the Royals avoided a three-game sweep by the Yankees with a 5-1 win on Thursday night at Kauffman Stadium.
Moustakas, who missed most of 2016 with a torn ACL, now has 32 home runs in his last 133 games. He leads the Royals in homers, with 10.
“That was a huge home run for us,” Duffy said. “Going from a two-run lead to a five-run lead, that just made it so much more comfortable.”
Duffy carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning, when Jacoby Ellsbury bunted for a single. Duffy gave up two more hits while walking two and striking out 10.
Oh, that was a huge home run? Really? That’s some tight analysis there.
Jordan Montgomery really needs to cut down on his home runs.
The Yankees travel to Tampa Bay for a three-game series in that awful shithole they call a stadium. Let’s hope that Severino can move on from his last awful outing!
