Gibson (12-10) allowed three runs on five hits and two walks striking out six across seven innings to earn the victory. Gibson gave up single runs in three different innings while receiving six runs of support which helped him earn his 12th victory of the campaign. Despite his 5.02 ERA on the season, he's now fired quality starts in six of his last seven outings while lowering his ERA over a full run during that time, making him a player who's been a strong fantasy option down the stretch. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Indians.
Gibson (11-10) allowed five runs on three hits and five walks while striking out eight batters through six innings to collect the win against Toronto on Sunday. This clearly wasn't Gibson's best form, and it was especially discouraging after entering on a roll. The 29-year-old righty posted a 1.38 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 7.2 K/9 through his previous five starts, after all. He lines up for consecutive road starts against Detroit and Cleveland to finish the year, and the matchup against the Tigers sets up as a bounce-back spot for Gibson.
Gibson (10-10) tossed six scoreless innings in Tuesday's win over the Padres. He allowed four hits and struck out six. The Twins' offense afforded Gibson a seven-run lead over the first two innings and the 29-year-old was able to cruise from there. He was dominant in his six innings of work, allowing just four Padres to reach base before being pulled from the lopsided contest after throwing just 74 pitches. Gibson has now recorded five consecutive quality starts and is proving to be a fairly reliable fantasy starting pitching option against weaker opponents. He lines up for a Sunday start against the Blue Jays, a team that he held to just two runs over 6.2 innings during his Aug. 27 start.
Gibson held the Royals to two runs on eight hits with one walk and no strikeouts over seven innings in Thursday's no-decision. Despite the lack of strikeouts, Gibson was effective once again after beating Kansas City in his previous start. His season-long numbers still look ugly, but the righty has picked things up over his past four outings. Gibson's 3-0 in that span and has allowed just five runs in 26.2 innings for a 1.69 ERA. He has an excellent opportunity to keep the good times rolling in his next start Tuesday against a Padres offense that's produced the fewest runs in the league.
Gibson (9-10) earned the win over the Royals on Saturday, allowing five hits over six scoreless innings. He struck out five and did not issue a walk. While the offensive explosion was the story of the night for Minnesota in a 17-0 rout, Gibson was very good in his own right. Gibson has earned wins in three straight starts and has posted a 20:2 K:BB in that stretch, but those performances have come against some of the coldest offenses in the American League (White Sox, Blue Jays and Royals). That said, he does get the Royals again his next time out.
