Chen has faced the Tigers seven times, 0-2 6.97 ERA
The Royals are 22-33 and losers of their last two.
You might remember from such performances as 14 strikeouts in fewer than six innings. (You might also remember him from 16 earned runs in fewer than six innings ... OK so it wasn't quite that bad. )
Interesting factoid from the Tigers media notes:
Austin Jackson finished with four hits yesterday versus Cleveland to bring his season total to 73 hits in 51
games thus far with the Tigers. His 73 hits are fourth-most in a player’s first 51 career games since at least 1952, trailing Ichiro Suzuki (85 hits in 2001), Kirby Puckett (77 hits in 1984) and Hunter Pence (74 hits in 2007).
