Sunday afternoon, the Minnesota Twins will give the ball to Kyle Gibson (13 - 11, 4.50 ERA) as they square off against the Detroit Tigers and David Price (14 -12, 3.36 ERA). It will be the 31st start for Gibson and the 34th for Price.
Kyle Gibson notched his 2nd straight victory in his last start. Gibson allowed just a run on 7 hits through 7 innings of work as he struck out 8 without issuing any walks. It was one of Gibson's better efforts of the year and only the 3rd time in his last 10 starts that he allowed fewer than 3 runs. He is 4 - 3 in those 10 outings. Last season, in his rookie campaign, Gibson started just 10 games and finished with a 2 - 4 record and a 6.53 ERA.
Gibson didn't face the Tigers in 2013 but he has seen them 4 times this season. He is 2 -2 in those 4 encounters.
David Price had a decent start his last time out but he ended up with a no-decision. Price went 8.2 innings and allowed 3 runs and 8 hits while striking out 8 without issuing any free passes. Price has had mixed results since joining the Tigers and is just 3 - 4 in his 10 starts for Detroit. Last season, Price started 27 games for the Tampa Bay Rays and compiled a record of 10 - 8 with a 3.33 ERA.
In 2013, Price pitched to a no-decision in his only start against the Twins. This season, Price is 2 -1 in his 3 starts against Minnesota.
