Taking a look at taiwanese pitcher Wei-Yin Chen role in the win

The Orioles got their weekend series in Boston off to a great start with Fridays hard-earned, 13-inning win. There were a lot of heroes but this morning Ill cite two pitchers who impressed me again on Friday.

First, Wei-Yin Chen. It was far from his best outing, as he gave up four runs in five innings, and it was just the second time in the last 11 games where the Orioles did not have a quality start.But Chen showed poise once again. After Robert Andino and Mark Reynolds made two-out errors in the last of the first, David Ortiz came up with a chance to give Boston the early lead. He entered the game batting .391 with six homers and 21 RBIs. He was hitting .488 at home and was 13-for-29 against left-handed pitching.But Chen didnt get unnerved by the errors and got Big Papi to ground out to end that threat.

Two innings later he got him out again, but this time his groundout scored a run. Chen will have better games than he had last night, but he showed that he is not afraid to pitch against the Yankees or Red Sox and there is some toughness there that I like.
