Bruce Chen was only able to record eight outs for the Kansas City Royals before eventually been replaced by Nate Adcock per manager Ned Yost. Chen's total damage? 6 earned runs on 6 hits and 2 walks on 62 pitches.
Mike Moustakas hit a solo homerun in the second inning to get the Royals on the board, but another triple by Danny Valencia along with a sacrifice fly by Ryan Doumit pushed the lead to 6-1 after three innings.
Moustakas drove in another run in the fourth to close the lead to 6-3, and if his bat can stay hot, then maybe the Royals can turn things around on Sunday in Target Field.
