Yankees slug their way to win over Royals

NY has outscored Kansas City 18-8 while pounding out 29 hits and looks to complete a three-game sweep with a victory in Thursday's series finale.

Duffy (3-3) struck out a season best 10 while walking two and earning his first win since April 14, against the Angels.

In seven innings Thursday, Duffy allowed three hits and struck out 10, the fourth double-digit strikeout game of his career. "It's one of those days where he got through the first three OK and then just really struggled to finish off his pitches", Royals manager Ned Yost said. Last Sunday, he pitched 3 2/3 shutout innings in Game 1 of a doubleheader against Houston, allowing one hit while fanning three. With Jordan Montgomery set to face Danny Duffy in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 8.5 runs. In fact, the only Yankees without a hit by the fifth inning were Matt Holliday and Aaron Judge, and all Judge had done was draw a pair of walks and score both times.

Duffy, who had been 0-3 with two no-decisions in his last five starts, was lifted after 108 pitches. "On certain nights it's going to be tough to put a lot up against them", Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. Butera singled home Soler with the second run of the inning. I don't know where this is coming from, maybe giving the hitters too much credit. If you're healthy, keep grinding it out, don't give away at-bats, I think it's going to be good, " said Castro, concentrating more on driving the ball to center and right and being more patient at the plate. "We've been able to come up with big hits in big situations and that's what you need".

The New York Yankees ended Wednesday's game with the Royals with a 11-7 win, putting them 1.5 games up in the AL East. Kansas City committed two errors for the first time this season.

The Yankees were 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position.

Having scored 18 runs against the Royals in two games, the Yankees arrived at Thursday's series finale leading the majors with a plus-63 run differential.

The game will be shown on Fox Sports 1, featuring the play-by-play debut of former Yankee Alex Rodriguez. But third base coach Mike Jirschele saw that right fielder Aaron Judge didn't get a good jump on the ball and waved Soler home.

"That's a play you should make", Castro said. The Yankees open a series Friday in Tampa Bay with RHP Luis Severino set to start.
