Royals look to keep whiffing White Sox

Danny Duffy will try to become the third straight Royals starter to record a career high in strikeouts as he takes the mound for Kansas City against the Chicago White Sox in the third game of a four-game series Wednesday night.

Glenn Sparkman pitched his first career shutout Tuesday in an 11-0 victory, recording eight strikeouts. That followed a 10-strikeout outing by Jakob Junis Monday.

For Duffy to join his mates in the run, he'd have to better his own club record of 16 strikeouts, a mark he set in 2016.
