Danny Duffy falters, gives up grand slam in Royals’ 5-2 loss to Colorado

An orderly evening crumbled around Danny Duffy in Wednesday’s sixth inning, and he found himself swept away by the onrushing debris. The sequence cost the Royals a game in a 5-2 defeat to the Colorado Rockies, reminded of Duffy’s ongoing maturation and displayed the consequences of rickety defense thanks to an explosive conclusion. The loss cut Kansas City’s lead in the American League Central to one game. The second-place Detroit Tigers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-0 earlier Wednesday.
