Chen Out Duels Sanchez, Royals Win 1-0


Chen dominated the Tigers by allowing no runs over 8 innings and threw only 100 pitches. The one run came from Hosmer that GameDay does a great job describing as:

Eric Hosmer singles on a pop up to shortstop Jhonny Peralta, deflected by Anibal Sanchez


  • Several good defensive plays helped. Gordon diving catch, Moose double play, Dyson's grab. Link to the videos
  • It is the Royals 11th shutout of the season, tied for 5th in the majors.
  • The Royals struck out only 1 time (Pena) and no one walked.
  • Moose had a nice tackle of Fielder in the bottom of the 6th.
  • Tigers were unclutch: 0-8 with RISP
  • Hacker of the game: Gordon with 12 pitches in 4 PAs
  • Finally, I was looking for Dyson's catch and saw the following image. Why is there an image of a player that hasn't made start in over two years?
