Royals 5, Twins 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Royals bullpen picked up starter Danny Duffy when he labored in his return from reconstructive elbow surgery, and Kansas City earned a series win. Duffy struck out seven in 32/3 innings in his first outing since May 2012 but needed 93 pitches to get that far. He left trailing 2-1 before four relievers managed to navigate the next 41/3 innings.
