Duffy beats Yanks for 2nd time in week as Royals win 6-2

Danny Duffy beat the Yankees for the second time in a week and rookie Jorge Bonifacio capped a three-run, seventh-inning rally with a go-ahead, two-run homer that led the Kansas City Royals over New York 6-2 on Tuesday night.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees lost to the Royals, 6-2. Kansas City couldn't solve Yankees rookie starter Jordan Montgomery, as they scored their only run on a Lorenzo Cain solo shot in Montgomery's 6 2/3 innings. But then against Yankee relievers Adam Warren, Jonathan Holder and Chasen Shreve, Kansas City was even more homer happy. Each of the Yankee relievers gave up a homers, as Jorge Bonifacio, Whit Merrifield and Mike Moustakas all went deep.
