|Bruce Chen notches ninth win to cap season |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(9/29/13) Bruce Chen moved to 9-4 with a win in the Royals' final game Sunday night.
Chen allowed a run on four hits and three walks over 6 2/3 innings. He struck out four on six swinging strikes. The outing completes arguably the best season of Chen's career. He spent much of the season in the bullpen and his 114 1/3 innings pitched was a four-year low, but his 3.27 ERA is his best in any season with at least 50 innings pitched, a pretty solid accomplishment for a 36-year-old.

(9/25/13) Royals pitcher Bruce Chen gave up four earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five in five innings as he fell to 8-4 in his team's 4-0 loss to the Mariners.
It would have been difficult for Chen to earn the win regardless of how he pitched, as rookie James Paxton completely shut down the Royals. Chen goes into Sunday's finale against the White Sox with a 3.31 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 74:33 K:BB ratio.
|Bruce Chen solid again in victory |

(9/18/13) Royals hurler Bruce Chen was looking for a rebound performance after struggling his last time out Wednesday night at home against the Indians. Chen was certainly better on this night.
The starter gave up just two runs on four hits and a walk over five innings and 71 pitches before being removed from the game with a lead. Chen earned the win to improve to 8-3 on the year with a 3.13 ERA.
Chen took a loss his last time out but has gone 3-1 in his last four decisions. Chen has been a rock for the Royals this season and makes his next scheduled start Tuesday at Seattle.
|Bruce Chen hammered by Tigers |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/13/13) Royals pitcher Bruce Chen (7-3) ran into trouble as he suffered his third loss of the season Friday night against the Tigers. The left-hander was shelled for six runs -- five earned -- on seven hits and two walks while striking out three over 4 1/3 innings of a 6-3 defeat.
Chen has allowed five runs or more in three of his last six starts. He is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday at home against Cleveland. He has allowed two unearned runs over 12 1/3 innings pitched against the Indians this season.
