Chen wins 2nd in row, Royals win 3-1 at Texas

Bruce Chen pitched into the seventh inning for his second straight win and the Kansas City Royals took advantage of Adrian Beltre's throwing error for a 3-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday night.

Chen (2-4) has won his last two starts since a four-game losing streak. The left-hander struck out seven and walked two over 6 2-3 innings, giving up only a massive homer to Nelson Cruz.

Scott Feldman (0-1) allowed two unearned runs over 4 2-3 innings in his second spot start this season.

Feldman gave up three hits, the last a two-run single by No. 9 hitter Alicides Escobar right after third baseman Beltre's two-out throwing error.

Jonathan Broxton worked the ninth for his eighth save in nine chances for the Royals, who have won 11 of 17 since their 12-game losing streak in April.
