Over before we had eve

    CHICAGO -- Danny Duffy couldnt help but think about his last start at U. [b][/b] .S. Cellular Field. The Kansas City Royals left-hander matched a career high with nine strikeouts and scattered five hits over seven-plus shutout innings in a 9-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. His previous outing in Chicago didnt go well at all. Duffy injured his elbow in the first inning on May 13, 2012. Soon after he had Tommy John surgery and missed about a year. "Ive been waiting to come back here for a long time," Duffy said. "Its just nice to come out and do my job in this city and in this setting." The victory was the sixth straight for the Royals while the White Sox dropped their ninth in 10 games against Kansas City. Royals manager Ned Yost said there was a lot to like about Duffys complete effort. "For four innings he was really efficient, he really kept his pitch count down," Yost said. "He had everything working: his fastball, his breaking ball, had a good changeup and had a really, really good defence behind him." 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. "To be able to put five runs on the board was big," Yost said. "Weve and a couple of big innings the last week or 10 days. Early in the year we get something going we get one or two out of it. Now that were swinging the bats better were getting four or five." Duffy last struck out nine on June 19, 2011, at St. Louis. Hes now 2-0 against Chicago. Duffy departed 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 Mariot to open the ninth. Two runs scored in the five-run fourth when third baseman Leury Garcia bobbled Lorenzo Cains grounder for an error. Moustakas then singled to shallow centre for another run. Alcides Escobars base hit extended his hitting streak to a career-high 12 games and loaded the bases for the second time in the inning. The Royals fourth run came on Nori Aokis double-play grounder. Omar Infante lined a two-out single to left, driving in Moustakas for a 5-0 lead. Noesi was chased in favour of right-hander reliever Javy Guerra with two outs in the fourth. "Hector, hes been good for us and hes always given us a chance, but we have to help him out on occasion," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "If were not helping him on defence, its going to make a difference. Thats a recipe to lose a game in a hurry." Moustakas homer in the eighth inning was his sixth of the season. He finished with two RBIs and two runs scored. Eric Hosmer had an RBI double to left to start a three-run ninth. Butlers one-out homer to right made it 9-0. Despite giving up an eighth inning single to Eaton, Duffys shutout was preserved after Eaton was thrown out at home on a throw by Aoki in a play overturned following a review. NOTES: Escobar was in Saturdays lineup despite having cramps and leaving Fridays game after extending his hitting streak to a career-high 11 games with a ninth inning double. . Kansas City has scored first in each game of its current six-game winning streak. . Royals right-hander James Shields (7-3, 3.44 ERA) makes his 15th start of the season in Sundays series finale against White Sox right-hander Andre Rienzo (4-3, 5.25 ERA), making his 11th start. . After going 63-99 in 2013, Ventura is pleased to have his team in contention this year, but he wont project beyond Saturday. "Were not going to look that far down the road," he said. "Were better off focusing on what were doing today." [b][/b] .Y. - The Philadelphia Eagles game at Green Bay against the Packers on Nov. [b][/b] . -- Chris Crawford hit a 3-pointer with 1:36 left to put Memphis ahead to stay, and the 21st-ranked Tigers beat seventh-ranked Louisville 72-66 Saturday, sweeping the season series from the Cardinals.In her latest World T20 diary entry, England Women’s Tash Farrant discusses the teams dancing, joins a dinner club and gatecrashes some golf awards... Hello again, this time from Delhi!We are well into the thick of things in the Womens World T20 now, having won all three of our warm-up clashes as well as coming out on top in our first group game against Bangladesh - a cheeky 36-run win, thanks largely to a player-of-the-match display from our leader, captain fantastic, Dame Charlotte Edwards. Charlotte Edwards in T20 action for England. Is a Damehood on the way? After the win over Bangladesh we headed to our hotels rooftop bar for a couple of celebratory drinks, particularly as it was also our team managers birthday. It was all very swanky, with a trendy Ibiza-esque vibe and equally trendy DJ who played a lot of Dubstep remixes. The highlight of the evening though was when we persuaded the DJ to play our team song as part of his carefully selected playlist that seemed to just consist of Kygos greatest hits. Safe to say, we absolutely belted it out, with our slightly off harmonies clearing the rooftop. I think an apology to all the hotels guests that night is in order!In addition to some great vocalists, we have a couple of pretty good dancers in the group. Nat Sciver in particular is regarded as a good mover. But have a watch of this video of Danni Wyatt and Dame Lottie to see if you think they too possess any sort of shapes...As a team we have had some cracking meals in the lovely hotels that we are staying in. Nothing quite beats some Chicken Tikka and Dahl Lentils in my eyes. The kind of fine dining you can expect in the England Womens dinner club A few of us have formed a dinner club, which prides itself on being accessible, open, and inclusive, with everyone welcome to join, but repeatedly seems to consist of the same five or six of us every time. [b][/b]. We obviously dont have a reputation of good chat at the dinner table!One of the more comical moments after one dinner club outing was when we somehow found ourselves in the middle of the annual Indian Golf Awards, which were being hosted in our hotel.All we wanted was a bottle of water! But we made the most of the opportunity to be there, taking a couple of snaps in front of various media backdrops, with Heather Knight even practicing her swing… Heather Knight (right) practices her swing as England Women have a night out at the India Golf Awards There were a few more comical moments in the warm-up games, especially in the match against South Africa, when Katherine Brunt started preparing for the practice Super Over before we had even batted… I think the heat may have got to her head a bit.Plus, there was Tammy Beaumonts unusual running between the wickets, which on one occasion ended in a backwards roll and dismount that Beth Tweddle would have been pleased with. Talk about putting your body on the line, literally.We are seeing a lot of India during the tournament, which brings with it A LOT of flying. This, for some of our girls, is certainly not their favourite pastime, #nervousflyers.Its probably not the greatest trait to have as an international cricketer and I have personally drawn the short straw recently, by sitting in front of Danni Hazell. She likes to punch the back of my seat as we land on some fairly bumpy runways.We now move on to the picturesque Dharamshala for our next two group games against India and West Indies. Bring it on.Ill be reporting back after them!Until next time!Fazza (Natasha Farrant, England Womens cricketer) Also See: Womens cricket home Sportswomen Cricket fixtures/results Get Sky Sports ' ' '
