Royals left-hander Danny Duffy appeared to have no-hit stuff from the get-go. Duffy fired a no-hitter for 5 2/3 innings before Colorado's Nolan Arenado clubbed his 28th home run, a two-run shot. The Royals hung on for a 3-2 win on Tuesday night at Kauffman Stadium after the Rockies loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth, and left-hander Scott Alexander got the final out after coming in for closer Kelvin Herrera, who left with an apparent injury.

Many of the Rockies nicknames for Players Weekend are dead giveaways. "Cargo" and "Nado" aren't exactly head-scratchers. But two monikers that will be worn Friday through Sunday on the jerseys of pitcher Tyler Anderson and infielder Ian Desmond are slightly more complex.
Carlos Gonzalez's season-long offensive woes have taken a toll on him.
Chase Anderson allowed one run in five innings in his first start back from the disabled list, and Jesus Aguilar hit two home runs as the Brewers remained two games back of the Cubs in the NL Central. The Rockies, who lost two of three in the series, remain one game up on the D-backs in the NL Wild Card chase. Mark Reynolds had a home run, but the Rockies were 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position.
With the playoff race heating up, now is not a good time for the Rockies' bats to go cold. Since their Aug. 6 loss to the Phillies, the Rockies have averaged 4.4 runs per game, including their 17-run barrage against the Braves on Wednesday.

Chad Bettis underwent a long recovery in his battle with testicular cancer, but things are slowly returning to normal.

Even Rockies leadoff hitter Charlie Blackmon isn't sure what to make of a recent happy trend. He opened Friday night's 8-4 victory over the Brewers with his career-high-tying 29th homer. It went the opposite way to left-center field -- which is becoming less unusual.
Jesus Aguilar had a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth as the Brewers topped the Rockies. Teammate Travis Shaw also went deep, his 27th of the season.
