KANSAS CITY (AP) -- Bruce Chen pitched eight crisp innings, Alex Gordon homered and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 on Tuesday night.

Chen (11-7) allowed two singles, struck out eight and walked one. He was 0-2 with a 7.94 ERA in his previous two starts. 

Chen yielded a leadoff single to Ben Revere, who stole second. He was the only Twin to get past first base against the left-hander. 

Danny Valencia singled in the fifth for Minnesota's only other hit off Chen.
