Morales, Gibson lead Twins to 8-1 rout of Mariners 10 Jul 14

 

SEATTLE (AP) – Kendrys Morales knocked in three runs and Kyle Gibson pitched six shutout innings to lead the Minnesota Twins to an 8-1 rout of the Seattle Mariners on Wednesday night.

Chris Colabello hit a two-run double, Brian Dozier scored twice and the Twins put up eight runs in the first four innings to chase an ineffective Roenis Elias. The rookie lasted a career-low 3 1-3 innings, yielding seven runs – six earned – and seven hits with three walks.

Gibson allowed multiple baserunners in three innings and only retired the side in order once. But he worked around seven hits and a walk, rebounding from a rough outing against the New York Yankees.

He gave up six runs, five earned, and six hits in two innings of a 6-5 loss last Friday.
