Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson allows two runs in no decision Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson allowed two runs on five hits in seven innings of work in Minnesota's 4-2 win over the Mariners Sunday.
Gibson worked efficiently through his start, with only one issue coming in the fourth inning. Gibson allowed a lead off home run to Seth Smith over the right field wall to get things started. Then after two batters reached base, Logan Morrison picked up an RBI on a groundout to third base. He finished off strong, with three strikeouts and three walks, but remains 1-2 on the year.
Gibson now boasts a 4.84 ERA and will look to get his second win Friday against the White Sox.
Twins P Kyle Gibson loses to Royals for first time in career
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson went five innings and gave up four runs — three earned — in Monday's 7-1 loss to the Royals.
This was the first time in his career that Gibson lost to the Royals. He entered this game having won each of the four games he's played against Kansas City. This time, though, the Royals were able to get the best of him with a three-run sixth inning.
Yet to record an out, Gibson gave up a two-run double to Kendrys Morales before being pulled.
Gibson gave up four hits and walked four batters. He did not record a strikeout.
Gibson's next scheduled start is projected for Sunday against the Mariners.
Twins SP Kyle Gibson is a perfect 4 for 4 in career vs. Royals
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson heads into his start Monday against the Royals with a career 16-17 record and 4.97 ERA in 43 starts. Although, the Royals are one team that Gibson hasn't struggled against in his young career.
Gibson has won all four of his career starts against Kansas City, including last Wednesday. He has a 1.38 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in those outings. Gibson can't pinpoint why he has had so much success against the AL Central foe, but added the key is pitching inside and using their aggressiveness against them, per MLB.com.
The Royals have scored less than four runs just twice in 12 games, including Gibson's outing Wednesday. They are tied for the second-most runs (68) in the majors.
Twins' Kyle Gibson allows one run in win vs. Royals
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson picked up his first win of the season Wednesday, giving up one earned run on nine hits in 6 2/3 innings while striking out three and walking none in his team's 3-1 victory over the Royals.
Despite surrendering nine hits, Gibson (1-1) didn't allow an extra-base hit in the game, and the Royals were only able to eek out a run in the fourth inning before the starter departed.
"If I can limit `em to singles and allow the defense to do some work behind me, that's going to be big for me," Gibson said after the game, per the Associated Press.
He takes a 6.10 ERA and 3:5 K:BB ratio into Monday's rematch with the Royals.
|2014 summary: Kyle Gibson fits the mold of a Twins pitch-to-contact starter, and thanks to an effective sinker, that approach worked well for him through the first three months of his first full season. Gibson entered July with a 7-6 record, a 3.77 ERA and six starts that lasted at least seven innings. In the dog days, Gibson became more hittable, and he finished with a 4.47 ERA and an average of 5.8 innings per start.|
Playing time status: Gibson is expected to begin the season in the Twins' rotation.
2015 outlook: While Gibson did a great job of preventing extra-base hits, he wasn't as successful at missing bats as he had been in the minors. If he can make some gains as a strikeout pitcher, Gibson could be viable in standard mixed leagues. Until that happens, though, he is more of a late-rounder in deeper mixed leagues.
