Twins-Royals Preview

(AP) -- Danny Duffy watched as Kansas City's offense was shut down in the series opener with Minnesota, something he's also grown accustomed to witnessing during his starts.

The left-hander hopes that's not the case Wednesday night against the visiting Twins as he looks to help the Royals avoid a third straight defeat.

Duffy (5-10, 2.47 ERA) is the only pitcher in baseball with double-digit losses while posting an ERA below 2.50 as Kansas City (53-52) has failed to provide him with much help.
