July 30, 2014

GIbson dominated the Royals in a 2-1 Twins win Tuesday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Less than a week removed from Mizzou Night at the K, Kansas City Royals fans again got a Mizzou experience last night as two former Tiger pitchers threw in a 2-1 Minnesota Twins win. Former Tiger ace Kyle Gibson (2007-09) out-pitched James Shields, tossing 7.0 innings, allowing just two hits while striking out seven against two walks in his ninth win of the season. The Royals threw reliever and former Tiger Aaron Crow (2006-08) and he tossed a scoreless eighth inning to keep Kansas City in the game.

With the dominating performance, Gibson moved his record to 9-8 in his first complete season in Major League Baseball. He lowered his ERA to 3.94 and the 6-6 righty is now limiting batters to a .249 average this season. It was Gibson's eighth start of 6.0-plus innings pitched without allowing a run this season and second in three starts. His seven strikeouts in the start were one off of his season-high. He threw 95 pitches in the outing and 66 went for strikes.

Crow improved his ERA to 2.98 as he is 5-1 this season with a pair of saves. He has emerged as one of Kansas City's top relievers again in 2014 and has appeared in 49 games, throwing 45.1 innings. Of his 49 games, he has not allowed a run in 43 of those appearances.
