      Royals sweep Tigers in day-night doubleheader

      DETROIT (AP) - James Shields allowed three hits in seven scoreless innings and was part of a combined four-hit shutout in Kansas City's 3-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night to give the Royals a sweep of a day-night doubleheader.

      Kansas City won the first game 2-1 as Danny Duffy took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and pitched a combined two-hitter.

      Royals pitching held the Tigers to a run and six hits for the two games.

      Eric Hosmer homered in each game.

      Shields (8-8) won his fourth game in his past five starts. He walked four and struck out one.
