Royals | Manager explains quick hook for Bruce Chen
Kansas City Royals SP Bruce Chen had thrown just 75 pitches over six scoreless innings Friday, April 6, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Manager Ned Yost pulled Chen, as he was about to go through the Angels lineup for the third time. "He was rolling," Yost said, "but it was the third time around through (2B Howard Kendrick), (1B Albert Pujols) and (OF Torii Hunter). You don't just look at 75 pitches and you quit. You go by the game. We had a lot of factors that went into that game."
