19 May 2017, 14:15 GMT+10

Jacoby Ellsbury is ruled out at first following a bunt attempt, but the call is challenged by the Yankees and overturned

"That was a huge home run for us," Duffy said. "Going from a two-run lead to a five-run lead, that just made it so much more comfortable."

Duffy carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning, when Jacoby Ellsbury bunted for a single. Duffy gave up two more hits while walking two and striking out 10.

A Moose calling: Moustakas jumped on a first-pitch 85-mph slider from Montgomery and hoisted it high into the night. A strong and gusting wind blowing in from right field nearly blew the ball back onto the field of play, but the three-run shot -- The Yankees challenged an out call at first after Ellsbury opened the fourth with a bunt along the first-base line. Duffy got off the mound and threw quickly to first, but the out call was overturned, giving the Yankees their first hit of the game. Yankees: Right-hander Luis Severino (2-2, 3.86 ERA) will make his eighth start on Friday at 7:10 p.m. ET when the Yankees open a weekend series against the Rays at Tropicana Field. Severino matched the shortest start of his career last Sunday, when he lasted just 2 1/3 innings and allowed six hits and three earned runs while taking a no-decision against the Astros.

Royals: Right-hander Nathan Karns (2-2, 4.46 ERA) takes the mound for the Royals as they open a three-game series in Minneapolis against the Twins on Friday at 7:10 p.m. CT. Karns struck out a career-high 12 batters in his most recent start, on Saturday against the Orioles.
