If Kyle Gibson's major league debut was memorable and his second outing was forgettable, Gibson's third career start was somewhere in between.
The Twins right-hander allowed four runs Tuesday against Tampa Bay, all in the fourth inning, as he and Minnesota fell, 4-1, to the Rays at Tropicana Field. As a result, Gibson fell to 1-2 with a 7.27 ERA in his young career.
Gibson cruised through Tampa Bay's lineup the first time before hitting a snag in the fourth inning. After walking just one batter in first two starts combined, Gibson issued four walks Tuesday -- including three in the fourth. It began with a leadoff walk to Desmond Jennings and was followed one batter later when Luke Scott drew a walk.
From there, Gibson nearly avoided trouble when he induced a shallow fly out to center and got Evan Longoria to strike out swinging. But another walk, this time to James Loney, was followed by a Matt Joyce single and a Kelly Johnson double, both of which drove in a pair of ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Tampa Bay Rays' hitters and starting pitchers have led the way during the team's red-hot stretch.
A contributor to the Rays' string of strong starts, Chris Archer is hoping to see some more of that hitting prowess in his next outing.
Archer will try to help Tampa Bay match its longest win streak of the season Tuesday night against the scuffling Minnesota Twins....
July has been a tough month for the Minnesota Twins as they have dropped eight of their nine games to fall 11 games back of division-leading Detroit.
A trip to Tropicana Field in Tampa has not brightened anyone's day, losing the first two games of the four-game series. For left fielder Oswaldo Arcia, it got even worse.
Arcia was tracking down a fly ball at full speed in foul...
Caleb Thielbar's impressive streak of scoreless innings may be over, but the Twins rookie has still been a bright spot for Minnesota during the first half of the year.
Before Monday's game against Tampa Bay, Thielbar had yet to allow a run in his first 19 23 innings of his major league career. Since making his debut on May 20, Thielbar made Twins history with his scoreless...
Minnesota outfielder Aaron Hicks has looked like a different player since returning from the disabled list earlier this month, and he had perhaps the best offensive game of his young career in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Hicks finished Monday's game with a four-hit night -- the first of his career -- which included two doubles and a triple. In seven games since...
Minnesota Twins rookie left fielder Oswaldo Arcia allowed a foul popup to hit him in the face during Tuesday night's game at Tropicana Field against the Tampa Bay Rays.
Arcia could have used a glove on his face for that play. Ouch.

Being a resident of the fine State of Minnesota, I have had front row seats to the sad demise of the Minnesota Twins as a functional, competitive major league team. Perhaps front row seats isn’t the appropriate terminology, as I’d have to be loony to pay the exorbitant prices to watch such a sub-par product [...]The post Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia gets hit in face by ball...
In a game that went 13 innings, every run was a big one Wednesday for the Minnesota Twins. Unfortunately for manager Ron Gardenhire's club, it left too many men on base and missed too many opportunities to push across a run and it resulted in a 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays.
The two teams combined to leave 24 runners on base, and it was the Rays who stranded the majority of...
Unfortunately, any Minnesota Twins fans in the St. Petersburg area on Tuesday who took in their favorite team facing the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field were dealt with suffering through another agonizing, borderline unwatchable (other than Oswaldo Arcia’s colossal derp when trying to field a foul popup) loss. So, said fans had to do [...]The post Twins fan feeds girlfriend sunflower...
The Minnesota Twins' offense and pitching both continue to prove unreliable during the team's rough stretch. Those troubles could continue Wednesday night as they face a hot pitcher while their own hurler tries to turn things around.
Minnesota tries to avoid losing its sixth straight road series when it faces Jeremy Hellickson and the Tampa Bay Rays, who seek a season-high...
Minnesota's Aaron Hicks races to deep center, leaps, and slams into the wall to make an incredible catch against the Rays in the 10th last night.

Chris Archer pitched six strong innings, while Matt Joyce and Kelly Johnson drove in two runs apiece to help the surging Tampa Bay Rays extend their winning streak to a season-best six games with a 4-1 victory over the sputtering Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night.
Archer (3-3) limited the Twins to an unearned run and three hits to outpitch fellow rookie Kyle Gibson (1-2), who was...
Good morning. Couldn’t sleep, so here are some links.
Oswaldo Arcia had a tough time with a fly ball.
In the event you didn’t know, pretty much all of the All Stars are former Twins.
I don’t know why I didn’t wrap my head around this, but Roger Maris still holds the AL single season home run record.
