Lucas Duda went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk as the Royals lost to the Brewers 5-2.

Fantasy Impact: Over the past six games, Duda has been struggling at the plate with three hits in 26 at-bats. Although he has not been productive for the past several games, Duda is still one of the best run producers for the team and should remain in your lineup moving forward.
