Bruce Chen will continue his search for a win in 2012 Wednesday night against the Red Sox, although it seems unlikely that he'll put a 'W' next to his 0-4 record. Chen has lasted only 9 1/3 innings in his last two starts, racking up 12 earned runs and 15 hits, and was tagged for six earned runs against the Yankees May 4. Chen has a career 5.98 ERA against Boston.
The Royals, meanwhile, have not hit well against left handed pitching like Boston starter Jon Lester. Kansas City has a team average of .225 against lefties this season.
