Wednesday night, the Minnesota Twins will send Kyle Gibson (11 - 10, 4.27 ERA) to the mound as they take on the Cleveland Indians and T.J. House (2 - 3, 3.71 ERA). Gibson makes his 28th start as House makes his 16th start and 17th appearance.
Kyle Gibson pitched to his 2nd straight no-decision in his last outing. In that start, Gibson allowed 4 runs and 7 hits in 7 innings of work as he walked 2 and struck out just 1. Gibson has been up and down in his last few trips to the mound and will bring a 4 - 3 record in his last 10 starts into this outing. Last season during his rookie campaign, Gibson posted a record of 2 -4 with a 6.53 ERA in 10 starts.
Gibson pitched to a no-decision in his only encounter against the Tribe in 2013. This year, Gibson is 1 - 0 in 3 starts against Cleveland.
T.J. House gave a good effort in his last outing but he still ended up pitching to his 3rd straight no-decision. House went 7 innings and allowed just a run (on a solo homer) and 7 hits. He fanned 7 without issuing a single free pass. House has allowed just 2 runs in his last 2 starts and seems to be settling into a groove. But he is only 2 - 2 in his last 10 appearances. At Triple-A earlier this season, House was 1 - 2 with a 2.40 ERA in 7 starts.
House has faced the Twins twice this season and he will bring a 1 - 0 record against Minnesota into this start.
