Analysis: Gibson allowed six runs in two innings. "I just got behind too many guys, and then you have to come in over the plate," Gibson said. "You can't do that against a team like Detroit. They are a pretty good team when you have to throw the ball down the middle." He faces the M's next.

Analysis: Gibson allowed three hits in five-plus innings as the Twins snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Indians. Gibson made 10 starts as a rookie last season, and the Twins are counting on the 25-year-old to do more after giving him the fifth spot in the rotation. The right-hander worked around four walks - two in the third, when he escaped a big inning by getting Nick Swisher to ground into a double play.
