Royals Vs. Twins: Bruce Chen Hopes To Make It 4 Wins In A Row For Kansas City

The Kansas City Royals are definitely a streaky team early in the 2012 MLB season with three wins in a row after a 12-game losing streak that was the talk of baseball for a while. The Royals won yesterday 7-6 and send Bruce Chen to the mound to make it four in a row. Chen has a 0-2 record on the year despite a 2.52 ERA. He's hoping for better run support against Jason Marquis.
