MINNEAPOLIS -- Kyle Gibson turned in yet another strong start and was backed by top prospect Miguel Sano's first career homer to help lead the Twins to an 8-3 win over the Orioles on Tuesday night at Target Field.
Gibson kept it rolling, giving up two runs over six innings to improve to 3-0 with a 1.74 ERA over his last three starts. His lone mistake was serving up a two-run blast to J.J. Hardy in the fifth with the Twins leading 8-0. He outpitched Orioles right-hander Kevin Gausman, who suffered through his worst outing of the year, giving up eight runs (seven earned) over 3 2/3 innings.
