Bruce Chen, who was making his first major league start since 2006, pitched three scoreless innings, but a three run homer in the fourth turned the tied as the Pirates beat the Royals 6-2.

Billy Butler provided RBI singles in the first and third innings for the Royals, but that was all they could come up with off of Pirates’ starter Paul Maholm who went seven innings allowing just five hits.

Delwyn Young hit a three run homer with one out in the fourth inning off of Chen who went 6.1 innings giving up seven hits with no walks and two strikeouts.
