Royals-Red Sox preview

BOSTON -- The second contest of the three-game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Kansas City Royals on Saturday at Fenway park features two of the hottest pitchers in baseball.

Royals left-hander Danny Duffy, who has won 10 straight decisions, faces Boston southpaw David Price, who has won his past three starts.

Duffy is one win shy of tying Kansas City's record for consecutive wins held by Rich Gale (1980) and Paul Splittorff (1977-78). He has emerged as a true ace with a record of 11-1 and a league-leading 2.66 ERA this season after starting the season in the bullpen. Duffy made 14 relief appearances before his first start May 15.
