Duffy fans 9 as Royals beat White Sox 9-1

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Danny Duffy matched a career high with nine strikeouts, and the Kansas City Royals extended their winning streak to six with a 9-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday.

Duffy (4-5) scattered five hits over seven-plus shutout innings for Kansas City.

Mike Moustakas homered among his three hits as the Royals won their second straight in this weekend series.

The Royals scored five times in the fourth - four with none out - to chase Chicago starter Hector Noesi (2-5).

Noesi allowed five runs - two earned - and eight hits while walking one and striking out four.

Duffy last struck out nine on June 19, 2011, at St. Louis. He's now 2-0 against Chicago.

The left-hander was chased in the eighth inning after a leadoff single by Adam Eaton.

White Sox designated hitter Paul Konerko spoiled the shutout with a homer off Michael Mariotoff to open the ninth.
