The Kansas City Royals finish off their 3-game set against the Houston Astros on Sunday afternoon. His shot off Dallas Keuchel in the fifth inning stood as the Royals' first and only run until they broke through with six more in the eighth. Hosmer hit his first homer on the year, Perez his third.

Gordon, Perez and Alcides Escobar all had two hits for the Royals. Raul Mondesi Jr. pinch ran for Moose, and then Alex Gordon provided another clutch hit (he had the big hit on Friday night as well) to score both of those runners.

"We do our homework when we scout guys", Yost said. "You come into these games and hope that he's not on his game but that was not the case".

Houston starter Mike Fiers allowed two runs, one earned, on five hits and three walks while striking out three in six innings.

But Duffy remained largely unbothered even when he encountered trouble. Marwin Gonzalez's two-run homer off Travis Wood tied the score 3-3 in the seventh. Duffy escaped further damage by getting McCann to roll into a 4-6-3 inning-ending double play. Carlos Beltran added a multi-hit game of his own going 2 for 4 while Jose Altuve ended with a single going 1 for 4 in the loss.

"It's early. We can't press", said Astros right fielder George Springer, who leads the club with three homers but was 0-for-3. "We just have to stay within ourselves".

TWINS 3, WHITE SOX 1 Phil Hughes pitched six strong innings for his first victory in nearly a year and Minnesota beat Chicago for its first 4-0 start since 1987.

KANSAS CITY KEY TRENDS: The Royals are just 1-7 in Duffy's last eight starts and are winless at 0-4 in his last four road starts.

Royals: Right-hander Nate Karns will make his first start and second appearance of the season in the finale on Sunday. There is no timetable for his return, but he will be re-evaluated after six weeks.

Astros: Collin McHugh, who started the season on the 10-day disabled list after dealing with what he called "dead arm" this spring, will not throw for the next six weeks after injuring his pitching elbow during a rehab start on Thursday. Cuthbert did not play in the series opener after making his season debut on Wednesday. Campanella hit 239 as a backstop from 1948-57.
