Chen out-pitches Lester as Royals keep rolling in 5-1 win over Boston

Bruce Chen turned in a magnificent performance Thursday when the Royals opened what amounts to a four-game weekend measurement against the Boston Red Sox with a 5-1 victory at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals, behind Chen, also pinned a loss on a long-time nemesis in Boston lefty Jon Lester, who had a 1.64 ERA and a no-hitter against them on his career resume.
