- Bruce Chen "out pitched" Jordan Lyles for the Win. That is all that matters.
- The Royals got 4 Hits and 0 BB for 2 Runs. The Astros on the other hand had 8 Hits and 3 BB generating 1 Run. Houston was so unclutched going 1-12 with RISP.
- The Royals pitchers had 14 Ks total. At one point, 7 straight outs were by strikeouts from Royals pitchers. The 14 Ks were a season high for the pitching staff in a 9 inning game. It is only second to the 15Ks in the 15 inning game with the Cardinals.
