Royals bullpen holds on for 5-4 victory over Twins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Bruce Chen labored through five innings before the Kansas City Royals’ bullpen took over, shutting down the Minnesota Twins the rest of the way in a 5-4 victory Saturday. The Royals have won five straight after getting swept last weekend in Minnesota. Chen (1-1) allowed all four runs on eight hits and four walks, but the damage could have been a whole lot worse. The crafty left-hander twice walked the bases loaded, and his only clean inning was the first, when Brian Dozier hit a fly out that nearly left the park. read more

Royals' Bruce Chen scratched from Thursday start

A minor ailment bothering veteran lefty Bruce Chen has reconfigured the Royals' starting rotation. With Chen nursing a tight left glute muscle, manager Ned Yost scratched him from his start on Thursday at Minute Maid Park. In his place, he moved up James Shields to replace Chen and tabbed Jason Vargas to start on Friday. Chen will attempt to return to the mound on Saturday when the team plays host to Minnesota.

Look out, Mariano Rivera: Royals' Chen is gaining on you

Royals pitcher Bruce Chen will never be confused with former Yankees closer Mariano Rivera. But Chen, a native of Panama, shares a place alongside Rivera in the record books that he takes particularly pride in. Chen, who starts on Friday night when the Royals open a three-game series at Minnesota, leads all Panamanian-born pitchers in major-league starts with 219 and in innings with 1,483 2/3. And with 80 career victories and 1,107 strikeouts, Chen needs three wins and 67 strikeouts to overtake Rivera for the top spot in both categories.

Is Bruce Chen a witch?

During Saturday's 4-3 win against the White Sox I got an email from a buddy--he wanted to know if Bruce Chen was a witch. I'm almost positive the answer is no, but I understand the question. How does a guy throw six and a third innings, strike out seven, walk nobody and give up exactly zero earned runs when he's throwing a fastball that topped out at 86 miles an hour?
