News
Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing just five hits and one walk in eight scoreless innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3 win over the Tigers.

Nolasco came through with his best start of the season Tuesday, but closer Glen Perkins surrendered a three-run bomb in the ninth to deny him the win. Nolasco has actually held the opposition to two earned runs or fewer in four of his last five starts, but he still owns a 5.34 ERA and 104:35 K:BB ratio in 148 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Diamondbacks Monday.

News
Twins pitcher Kyle Gibson had a rough start Wednesday against the Tigers.

Gibson allowed four runs on seven hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked three during the outing. Gobson got himself in trouble immediately. After quickly getting two outs in the first, Gibson allowed a single, walk and two straight run-scoring singles. He had similar struggles in the second inning. With two outs, Gibson gave up a run-scoring single and a run-scoring double during the inning. He would settle in at that point, tossing four straight scoreless innings before leaving the game. 

Despite the poor performance, Gibson picked up a win. He improved to 12-11. Gibson will take on the Diamondbacks in his next start.
