Royals' Duffy looks to maintain stellar record at Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Kansas City left-hander Danny Duffy has lost back-to-back starts, but history indicates he will have a good chance to get back on track Wednesday afternoon in the finale of the Royals' three-game series against the Oakland Athletics.

Duffy is 3-0 with a 2.84 ERA in six career games, including five starts, against the Athletics. All three of those wins came at the Coliseum, where he has a 2.33 career ERA in four games (three starts).

Duffy is one of three active players with a perfect record and a sub-3.00 ERA against Oakland in at least five starts, along with Miami's Wei-Yin Chen (5-0, 2.30) and Baltimore's Chris Tillman (4-0, 2.51). Just don't expect Duffy to let his past success lead to overconfidence.
