KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Eric Skoglund pitched 6 1/3 innings of two-hit ball in his major league debut, helping the Kansas City Royals beat Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Skoglund, a 2014 third-round draft pick out of Central Florida, struck out five and walked one. The left-hander was promoted from Triple-A Omaha when the Royals placed Danny Duffy on the disabled list Monday with an oblique strain.

Kelvin Herrera pitched the ninth for his 12th save in 14 opportunities.

Verlander (4-4) left after seven innings, allowing one run and six hits.
