Danny Duffy couldn't get the no-hitter, but he still came away with a team record.
The left-hander pitched eight innings of one-hit ball and had a franchise-record 16 strikeouts to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 3-0 win over the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday night.
Duffy (7-1) flirted with the Royals' first no-hitter in nearly 25 years before giving up a line-drive double to Desmond Jennings leading off the Tampa Bay eighth.
"There's been a number of occasions when Danny's stepped on the mound and I said this might be the night," Royals manager Ned Yost said. "But when he got through the seventh I thought this MAY be the night."
