by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Chen blanked the visiting Red Sox during that stretch, giving up just four hits and walking none. His seven strikeouts were a season-high. He retired the first 11 batters and faced the minimum into the sixth inning as he raised his record to 7-2 and lowered his ERA to 3.76.

He will attempt to keep up the good work Monday in Tampa Bay.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The southpaw permitted two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out four over 6 1/3 innings of a no-decision against Oakland.

Over his last two starts covering 11 2/3 innings, Chen has allowed three earned runs. He owns a 4.13 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP in 12 starts (69 2/3 innings). He will look to make his next start Wednesday at home against Boston.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Orioles starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen held on long enough to toss a quality start and pick up a 4-3 win over the Astros Friday.

Chen looked like he might have to settle for a no-decision after allowing the Astros to tie the game, 2-2 in the seventh inning. Fortunately, the offense got going shortly after, scoring two runs in the bottom and putting him in line for the win, his fourth of the season.

Chen allowed two runs on five hits in seven innings, allowing one home run in his final inning of work. He struck out four batters and walked one, while throwing 67 of 101 pitches for strikes.

Chen was in command of a 6-0 lead before running into some trouble in the fifth inning. Jackie Bradley had a one-out RBI double, Brock Holt followed with a sac fly and Dustin Pedroia added a two-out RBI double before Chen worked his way out of trouble.

Wei-Yin Chen gets plenty of run support in win vs. Yankees


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Orioles starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen didn't need his best stuff Tuesday against the Yankees as he got plenty of run support in a 14-5 win. The left-hander allowed four runs on nine hits and no walks in five innings, while striking out three.

Chen's stat line Tuesday was similar to how he performed in his season debut against the Red Sox. Only this time he earned the win.

Chen (1-1) gave up an RBI double in the bottom of the first inning to Carlos Beltran, but by the time he took the mound he already had a 3-0 lead.

The Orioles were leading 7-1 when the Yankees plated three runs in the bottom of the fourth. Alfonso Soriano led off the inning with a home run, while Yangervis Solarte added an RBI double and Brett Gardner had an RBI groundout later in the inning.
