Gibson proving to be more than capable starter for Twins

MINNEAPOLIS -- On a night when the Minnesota Twins needed their starting pitcher to go deep into the game, Kyle Gibson delivered. And through two starts, Gibson has pitched more like an ace than a No. 5 starter. Granted, it's early to throw such labels onto the Twins' 26-year-old right-hander. But following arguably the best start of the year by a Minnesota pitcher, Gibson...
