Article excerpt

Duffy allows one hit, records 16 strikeouts in eight innings

Danny Duffy pitched eight innings of one-hit ball and had a franchise-record 16 strikeouts to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 3- 0 win over the host Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.

Jose Berrios (2-1) retired 15 straight after a three-run first inning. The rookie righthander, recalled from Triple-A Rochester before the game, allowed four hits in six innings.
