KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Danny Duffy carried a perfect game into the seventh inning, Billy Butler drove in a run and the Royals held on. Duffy, 25, retired the first 20 batters, rarely running the count to three balls and flirting with the first perfect game in franchise history. Adam Jones ended it with a weak groundball up the middle with two outs in the seventh. Duffy bounced back to get Chris Davis on a flyout to end the inning then gave up a single to Nelson Cruz to start the eighth.
