Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Kyle Gibson overcame early struggles and helped the team beat the Detroit Tigers 7-3 Friday night. Jeimer Candelario has 12 hits - including two homers - to go along with nine runs scored in his last eight games. Tonight, the Tigers and Twins continue their four-game series, the last homestand for Detroit this season.

Jordan Zimmermann was tagged with the loss after giving up three runs on five hits in four innings. He'll carry a disappointing 5.59 ERA and 1.68 WHIP into his next outing, whether that's a start or out of the bullpen remains in question. Sep.
