Indians Salvage Series and Beat Chen, Royals 10-3 in Finale

It can almost be expected when you remember that Ned Yost puts out his “white flag” lineup each and every Sunday. While the season finale loss was frustrating, Royals fans must remember to think about the big picture. Carlos Santana homered two more times and the Indians finally broke out of their slump, ending the Royals’ five-game winning streak with a 10-3 win on Sunday...

Streaking Royals send Chen to mound to finish off four-game sweep of Indians

They're now in a position to finish off a four-game home sweep of the Cleveland Indians and extend their winning streak to six in Sunday's series finale. After a 7-5 win Saturday in which they came back from five runs down after the second inning, the...

Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Jul 22

Tuesday’s probable starters are rather underwhelming — just nine of the day’s 30 pitchers rank 100 or better, though several check in at 99-point-something. Bruce Chen, who’s filling in for Jason Vargas in Kansas City’s rotation, comes in at 109.1 against the White Sox. Steamer projects a 4.05 ERA the rest of the way for Chen, but the rankings say he’ll go fairly deep...

Royals Ride Big Seventh Inning, Win Game 5-2

Round one of Verlander vs. Chen goes to Yordano Ventura. Technically, Yordano Ventura got the win, but Bruce Chen gave us 5.1 innings of decent work. In his first start off the DL, Chen only allowed two earned runs, and struck out two batters. While this does not qualify as a quality start, for Bruce this was certainly quality. Royals pitchers haven’t quite figured out Austin Jackson...

Royals salvage some pride -- and history says they'll salvage the second half, too

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It didn't save a series. But it sure beat the living Shinola out of the alternative. "It's huge," said veteran pitcher Bruce Chen, Sunday's emergency starter, after the division-chasing Kansas City Royals rallied for a 5-2 win over the division-leading Detroit Tigers -- the former's first home victory against the latter since Sept. 8...

Four-game sweep by Detroit? Not if Chen, Royals can help it

For the first time in six seasons, Justin Verlander is not on the AL All-Star roster. However, he does have a chance to enter the break on a three-star winning streak. He'll look to help the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers complete a four-game sweep and improve to 7-0 on the road against the Kansas City Royals on Sunday. A six-time All-Star, Verlander (8-7, 4.84 ERA) has endured...

Stripper calls out two Royals pitchers for being cheapskates

Royals pitchers Bruce Chen and Yordano Ventura crossed the wrong stripper. Isabel Kennedy, writer and stripper based out of Minneapolis, was on-hand to witness how some Royals players acted while in a strip club. She wasn’t afraid to call-out a couple of players for their cheapness. I'm about shaming trashdick pro athletes @ work; the #KCRoyals players that came in last night...

Fire and Rain Don’t mix: Royals fall miserably 6-2

    This game was absolutely miserable. There were so many things wrong with this game. Where do I begin? First of all, The Kansas City Royals are the worst at managing rain delays. After a four-hour rain delay, there might have been 1,000 people left in what started out as a 21,000+ crowd. Secondly, after the team was already down 2-0 at the end of the second rain delay, it almost...

Royals Injury Update: Bruce Chen, Nori Aoki, Danny Valencia

The Kansas City Royals entered a weekend series with the Seattle Mariners a half of a game ahead of the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central. At 39-33, the Royals have been balance offensively and on the mound, 14th in scoring and 14th in team ERA.

Is Bruce Chen turning into Jaime Moyer?

by John Viril— Soft-tossing lefty Bruce Chen keeps rolling along. He’s logged at least 6 innings and surrendered no more than 2 runs in five straight starts after Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost inserted him into the starting rotation July 12. Chen continued his fabulous run Thursday night with his strongest start yet in the Royals 5-1 victory over Boston. The lefty went...
