Duffy takes no-hitter into 6th, Royals beat Tigers

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- Danny Duffy took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and beat Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers 2-1 on a combined two-hitter Friday in the first game of a day-night doubleheader.
   Kevin Hosmer homered for the Royals.
   Ramon Santiago hit a pinch hit home run for the Tigers.
   Duffy (1-0), making his second big-league start this season after being called up from Triple-A Omaha Friday morning, held Detroit hitless for 5 2-3 innings, while walking three and hitting a batter. Miguel Cabrera got the first hit, a one-hop liner to third baseman Emilio Bonifacio's right. Bonifacio dove for it, but the ball went off his glove and bounced toward left-center.
   Greg Holland pitched the ninth for his 33rd save.
   Verlander (12-9) allowed two runs on seven hits in eight innings.
