Duffy could be just the guy to halt Astros' five-game win streak

The Houston Astros got exactly what they wanted from their newest pitcher while extending a win streak, ending a lengthy road skid and moving into a virtual tie for the AL West lead.

Duffy Returns; Offense Leads the Way in 8-2 Series Win

Wednesday night marked the return of Danny Duffy, who was activating from the disabled list before the contest. He was sharp early, but was on a limited pitch count so only managed to go four and two-thirds innings while striking out four and issuing one earned run. Part of the reason Duffy has had struggles in the past was in the control department, so it was positive to see him...

Offense, Umpire Dooms Royals as They Drop Game Two, 2-1

I’m going to keep it short and sweet tonight. Poor Danny Duffy. Danny Duffy made another fabulous start tonight, but it was soiled by the offense yet again. Duffy gave us six innings of quality work as he only gave up one earned run. It was an errant throw by Duffy that gave the Tigers their second run. Nine men left on base tonight. Nine. That’s absolutely pathetic. That’s...
