Twins SP Kyle Gibson posts fine outing in no-decision on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/1/2015) Twins young right-hander Kyle Gibson was solid in his start against the Mariners on Saturday. Gibson allowed two runs on six hits over seven innings. He walked one and struck out four, but was left with a no-decision in the 3-2 walk-off win.

Gibson gave up an early run in the first, and then surrendered a solo home run to Nelson Cruz in the sixth, accounting for all the damage against him on Saturday.

Gibson left the game trailing by a run, but the Twins were able to rally for a pair of runs in the bottom of the ninth to get him off the hook.

It was a strong bounceback effort from Gibson, who had allowed 11 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings over his previous two starts.


Twins SP Kyle Gibson clobbered again in loss to Yankees


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/26/2015) Perhaps the All-Star break layoff did not have a negative effect on Twins starter Kyle Gibson. But he certainly hasn't pitched well since his return.

Gibson experienced his second straight poor performance Sunday against the visiting Yankees. He yielded six runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings in lowering his record to 8-8 and raising his ERA to 3.48, its highest point since May 1. He walked two and fanned four.

The right-hander blanked New York through four before surrendering a solo home run to Chase Headley in the fifth. That signaled disaster as he was greeted by two walks, three singles and three runs to begin the sixth. Two more runs scored after he was removed.

Gibson has given up 12 earned runs in 10 1/3 innings covering his last two starts.


Twins' Kyle Gibson has four-game win streak snapped


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson dropped to 8-7 with a loss to the Angels on Tuesday. 

Gibson saw his four-start winning streak snapped. He gave up six runs on 10 hits, both season highs, over six innings. 

"I didn't have my best stuff," Gibson said, per MLB.com. "The pitch I needed the most was my glove-side fastball, and it had been the pitch the last couple weeks that had been pretty consistent for me and allowed me to work off that. So not having that was tough."


Twins SP Kyle Gibson picks up seventh win on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/7/2015) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson was excellent once again on Tuesday. Gibson allowed two runs on six hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out seven, as the Twins beat the Orioles 8-3.

Gibson (7-6) allowed a two-run home run to J.J. Hardy in the fifth inning for the only blemish on his evening. Gibson has a 2.56 ERA with 27 punchouts over his last seven starts.


Twins' Kyle Gibson shines in strong start Thursday against Royals


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/2/2015) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson had one of the finest outings of his young career on Thursday. Gibson held the Royals scoreless over eight innings in the 2-0 win. He struck out seven and walked four, as he evened his record to 6-6. 

Gibson worked around a high amount of baserunners, but he managed to avoid any serious damage. The fine outing lowered his ERA to 3.04. Gibson has allowed three runs or fewer in four consecutive starts.


Twins SP Kyle Gibson snags first win in five weeks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson continued a remarkably consistent, if unspectacular, run Saturday in Milwaukee. His last four starts have proven nearly identical.

There was one difference against the Brewers. This time he won.

Gibson allowed two runs on six hits in 6 2/3 innings with one walk and three strikeouts. He pitched either five or six innings in his previous three outings and surrendered between 2-4 runs.

His latest start was marred only by RBI singles from Adam Lind in the fourth inning and Ryan Braun in the seventh that knocked him out of the game. His first win since May 24 raised his record to 5-6.

Gibson induced 12 ground balls that produced 13 outs. That proved encouraging.

"That's his game," Paul Molitor told MLB.com. "We talked before the game about being more aggressive. He gets a lot of ground balls with his downward movement, especially with his sinker."


Kyle Gibson loses third straight for Twins


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson lost his third straight game, dropping to 4-6 with a loss to the Cubs on Sunday. 

Gibson, who hasn't won since May 24, allowed two runs on six hits over five innings. He walked three, struck out six and gave up a home run. 

"They just did a good job battling and took a lot of close pitches," Gibson said, per MLB.com. "They were patient and made me work hard. I don't know how many games in my career where I had to throw 20 pitches in an inning. So they just did a good job battling."

Gibson's next start will be Saturday, at Milwaukee. 


Twins SP Kyle Gibson gives up three runs in loss on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/16/2015) Twins starter Kyle Gibson took a tough-luck loss on Tuesday, as he posted his seventh quality start of the season, but the Cardinals took the 3-2 victory. The right-hander pitched six innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He walked two and struck out four, as his ERA increased a tick to 3.33.

Despite the ultimate result, this was a nice rebound effort from Gibson, who had given up 10 runs (nine earned) over 13 innings in his previous two starts. His record drops to 4-5 with Tuesday's loss.

He's scheduled to make his next start on Sunday at home against the Cubs.


Twins P Kyle Gibson allows four earned runs in loss


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson gave up five runs — four earned — in Wednesday night's 7-2 loss to the Royals. 

Gibson surrendered five hits and two walks while striking out six batters. Gibson now has a 3.24 ERA for the season. Gibson has now allowed nine earned runs over his past two games after giving up eight over the previous seven. 

Gibson's next start is projected for June 16 against the Cardinals. 


Twins' Kyle Gibson gives up five runs in no-decision


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Twins starter Kyle Gibson gave up five runs on six hits over seven innings in a no-decision against Milwaukee. 

Gibson didn't walk a batter and struck out nine. He was tagged for three home runs, one in each of the first three innings, before he settled down.

"It's no secret tomorrow is a bullpen day, so if I went four or five innings it was going to hurt the bullpen even more," Gibson said. "I had a job to do and that was to try to get through six or seven innings to give the bullpen a break." 

Gibson's next start is next Friday at Texas. 


Twins SP Kyle Gibson pushed back to Friday vs. Milwaukee


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson has been pushed back to Friday vs. Milwaukee, as Tommy Milone will be recalled from the minors to start Thursday at Boston, manager Paul Molitor said Wednesday.

Molitor also made it clear that Milone's recall will not be a precursor to the team going to a six-man rotation.

Gibson is 3-1 with a 1.54 ERA in his last seven starts.


Twins SP Kyle Gibson gets no-decision in victory on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/30/2015) Twins starter Kyle Gibson finished one out shy of posting his second consecutive quality start in Saturday's win over the Blue Jays. Gibson pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on eight hits, including a solo home run to Kevin Pillar in the fourth inning. Gibson struggled with his command a bit, as he walked four and struck out three, throwing just 58 of his 103 pitches for strikes.

His defense didn't do him any favors either, as an error in the sixth inning led to an unearned run. Gibson (4-3) took a no-decision on Satuday, as the Twins took the lead in the bottom of the seventh.

"That was a battle out there today," said Gibson, per MLB.com. "They put a lot of good at-bats together and put a lot of pressure on me early."

He'll look to get back in the win column when he makes his next start Thursday in Boston.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Gibson cruised through much of his start, making just one mistake when Jose Abreu curshed a solo home run off of him in the fourth inning. Gibson recored eight strikeouts with no walks, lowering his ERA to 2.72 in 56 1/3 innings of work. 

Gibson, now 4-3, will look to keep things rolling on Saturday against the Blue Jays.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson allowed three runs on eight hits in five innings of work in Minnesota's 11-3 loss to the Rays on Sunday.

Gibson's troubles started in the third when he allowed the first four hitters of the inning to reach base safely, leading to a run. Then, James Loney reached on a fielder's choice, plating a second run. He would give up one more run in the fifth. 

"I would've liked to get a few more innings under my belt," Gibson said to MLB.com. "Five innings leaves a lot of pressure on the 'pen with four innings against a pretty tough team."

Gibson, now 3-3, moved his ERA to 2.98 in 48 1/3 innings of work. He will look to bounce back Sunday against the White Sox.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Twins SP Kyle Gibson is a perfect 4 for 4 in career vs. Royals


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) 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.

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.


Twins P Kyle Gibson gets rocked, takes the loss in season debut


by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Gibson gave up six runs on eights hits with five walks in 3 2/3 innings pitched. He also surrendered a three-run homer to J.D. Martinez, finishing the game with an ERA of 14.73.

"With the walks, I didn't give myself a chance," Gibson said. "They started hitting bloops and it just compounded the problem. They'd find a hole and it would lead to a few runs, per the Star Tribune."

Gibson hopes for a better performance in his next outing against the Royals on Wednesday.

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

In 19 innings pitched this spring, Gibson has posted an ERA of 2.75 with 17 strikeouts
