KANSAS CITY -- Left-hander Danny Duffy had a rough outing on Wednesday night for Triple-A Omaha, but avoided the loss as the Storm Chasers dropped a 6-5 decision to New Orleans.
Duffy gave up back-to-back singles and one walk in the top of the sixth inning to load the bases before Francisley Bueno took over. All three runs scored and Duffy finished with four runs (two earned) on seven hits, three walks and eight strikeouts in five innings. He threw 98 pitches -- 64 for strikes.
Duffy, who has made two Major League starts this season for the Royals, is 3-0 with a 4.08 ERA in 12 games and 10 starts for Omaha.
