    As have lost 18 of their past 24 games in which the opposing club starts a
    left-hander. They are 15-23, a .395 winning percentage, the worst in the majors
    when opponents start a southpaw.The As will see one of the best left-handers in
    the American League Tuesday night when the Kansas City Royals will start Danny
    Duffy, who is 11-2 with a 3.13 ERA, while striking out a team-leading 167 in 155
    1/3 innings. He has struck out 10 or more in three games, including fanning 10
    Minnesota Twins with no walks in six innings in his previous start, a
    no-decision.Duffy is undefeated in five career outings, four of them starts,
    against Oakland. He is 3-0 with a 2.59 ERA vs. Oakland, working one scoreless
    inning in relief on April 16.Plus Duffy is undefeated at Kauffman Stadium this
    year, 6-0 with a 3.38 ERA. His last home loss was Sept. 5, 2015. Duffys seven
    victories since the All-Star break are tied for the second most in the majors,
    despite not winning since Aug. 21.Duffy has held left-handed hitters to a .177
    batting average, which is first among AL pitchers who have faced at least 100
    lefty swingers.The Royals are desperate for a victory to keep in the American
    League playoff race. They are four games in arrears in the AL wild-card
    standings with 19 games remaining. Plus they must climb over five teams to get
    to the second wild-card rung, a formidable challenge.It means were playing
    meaningful games, Royals manager Ned Yost said. We still feel like were in it.
    It makes the season more exciting than when youre not in it and its great for
    the fans.It was not exciting for the Royals players or great for the fans on
    Monday night, as the last-place As thrashed the Royals 16-3. Six Royals pitchers
    combined to not only give up 17 hits, an As season high, but also walked 10. Two
    of the hits were a pair of three-run homers to Khris Davis and Marcus Semien.Its
    great to have a game like that, As manager Bob Melvin said.Yost said it is easy
    to forget a game like that.These games are easy to turn the page, a lot tougher
    than losing a one-run game or a game in extra innings, Yost said. We just got
    beat. We didnt play good; we didnt pitch good and we got beat.The As will start
    right-hander Jharel Cotton, who limited the Los Angeles Angels to one run and
    two hits over 6 1/3 innings in his major league debut Wednesday. He struck out
    three and walked two. Cotton is one of the three players the As received from
    the Los Angeles Dodgers for Josh Reddick and Rich Hill. In six starts with
    Triple-A Nashville, Cotton went 3-1 with a 2.82 ERA. Overall, with Nashville and
    Oklahoma City, he was 11-6 with a 4.31 ERA in 28 games, 22 of them starts. He
    led the Pacific Coast League with a career-high 155 strikeouts.

    all sidelined by injury, the Lakers signed Marshall out of the D-League on
    Friday before their home game against Minnesota.Phil Taylor moved three points
    clear at the top of the Premier League after starting the second phase with wins
    over Gary Anderson and James Wade in Sheffield. The Power kicked off the evening

    Phil Taylor 7-4 James Wade Taylor said this week that he felt two wins would all
    but guarantee a return to the O2 for Finals Night in May after missing out last
    year and he delivered those victories on the opening night of the second phase
    of the tournament. First up for Taylor was defending Premier League champion and
    two-time defending world champion Gary Anderson and the Power clocked up an
    impressive 7-3 success after reeling off five successive legs after trailing
    3-2.The Flying Scotsman missed chances to forge a 4-2 and that seemed to affect
    him as Taylor cruised through the remainder of the match to apply the pressure
    on Van Gerwen who was up next.The Dutchman responded by ending a run of three
    successive draws in a high-quality contest against a rejuvenated Robert
    Thornton. Michael van Gerwen was back to his best with a win over Robert
    Thornton (Pic: Lawrence Lustig) MVG recorded an average of 117.95 in his victory
    but was made to work hard by Thornton who fought back from 6-2 down to 6-5 and
    give himself a chance of an unlikely point - it was not to be for the Scot and
    Van Gerwen reduced the gap on Taylor back to just a point.However the Power was
    back in the final match of the evening to secure a valuable 7-4 victory over
    James Wade and a priceless lead aat the top of the table ahead of next weeks
    fixtures in Belfast.ddddddddddddTaylor was too strong for the Machine, although
    both men showed signs of tiredness in their second match of the evening.With
    scoring and finishing scrappy, Taylor looked to have done enough when he moved
    into a 5-1 lead as Wade wasted a string of chances. Premier League - Night 11

    James Wade v Adrian Lewis Michael van Gerwen v Gary Anderson Raymond van
    Barneveld v Robert Thornton However the Machine fought back to 5-3 and 6-4 to
    remain in with a chance of a point before a ruthless Taylor closed out the match
    and a win that underlines the resurgence he has shown in an unbeaten run now
    stretching nine weeks.Im over the moon and its another four points and a step
    closer to getting into the play-offs, said Taylor.I think another one or two
    wins will put me through and thats what Im after.Gary Anderson was the first
    stepping point. At three-each it was a close match and then he let me in, and I
    took advantage of him. It was hard in the second match against James, its
    difficult but youve got to do it and to get the two points from that game is
    lovely.In the nights opening match, Wade had begun with a fine 7-4 victory over
    Raymond van Barneveld.Barney knew he needed victory to keep alive any slim hopes
    of a play-off place and the pair could not be separated until the 10th leg when
    Wade broke for the first time and a 6-4 advantage which he consolidated to win
    the match.Adrian Lewis and Peter Wright shared the points in a scrappy and
    disjointed affair. The first 10 legs went with throw before Snakebite looked to
    have secured a crucial break but somehow Jackpot managed to earn a share of the
    spoils. Also See: Premier League darts - as it happened When Mardle played
