Christina Kahrl MLB Staff Writer 

Another rough start for Danny Duffy. So far this season vs. 2017, he isn't throwing strikes (pitches in the strike zone dropped from 55 to 47%) and his rate of swinging strikes has dropped from 12.5 to 9.6%. He's using his fastball more often, but his velocity is down even though the spin rate on his fastball is up from 2243 to 2346.

Pujols homers, drives in 3 as Angels top Royals 5-4

Albert Pujols homered and drove in three runs, Ian Kinsler had three hits and a sacrifice fly that scored Shohei Ohtani with the go-ahead run in the eighth inning and the Los Angeles Angels rallied to beat the Kansas City Royals 5-4 on Friday night.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Teams are still trying to pitch inside to Shohei Ohtani and he ripped a 97-mph fastball on the inside corner from Brandon Maurer into right-center for a bases-clearing triple -- the first time he's had a chance to showcase his plus speed as he made it easily. The Angels announcer brought up former Royals great Willie Wilson. Ohtani isn't THAT fast, but he can run. He's 1-for-3 with a walk so far.

Royals put Gordon (hip) on DL, recall Almonte

A torn hip labrum led the Kansas City Royals to place Alex Gordon on the disabled list Tuesday. The team recalled Abraham Almonte from Triple-A to fill Gordon's spot on the roster.

Alcides Escobar couldn't keep the ball in his glove in trying to make a diving stop on Dan Vogelbach's hard grounder up the middle and Jakob Junis' no-hit bid ends after 6.1 innings on the infield single.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

I told you the Mariners would be swinging! Junis throws four pitches in a 1-2-3 sixth, so he's at 71 pitches with nine outs to go for the no-hitter.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Royals starter Jakob Junis has a no-hitter through five innings against the Mariners as he tries to spin the first no-no for the Royals since Bret Saberhagen in 1991. Considering the Royals are up 9-0 and it was 43 degrees at game time, this could be one of those games when the Mariners swing early and often just to get back to the hotel as soon as possible.
