Royals bullpen holds on for 5-4 victory over Twins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Bruce Chen labored through five innings before the Kansas City Royals' bullpen took over, shutting down the Minnesota Twins the rest of the way in a 5-4 victory Saturday.

The Royals have won five straight after getting swept last weekend in Minnesota.

Chen (1-1) allowed all four runs on eight hits and four walks, but the damage could have been a whole lot worse. The crafty left-hander twice walked the bases loaded, and his only clean inning was the first, when Brian Dozier hit a fly out that nearly left the park.
