Gibson starts strong, Twins hold on to beat Tigers, 6-5

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Kyle Gibson knew his job was potentially on the line when he faced the Detroit Tigers on Saturday night. He picked a great time to deliver his best start of the season.

Gibson took a shutout into the eighth inning, Zack Granite had three of the Twins' 14 hits, and Minnesota held off a late rally for a 6-5 victory.

The Twins have been rumored to be searching for starting pitching as the trade deadline approaches and Gibson (6-8), who entered the game with a 6.29 ERA, was a likely candidate to be replaced in the rotation.
