Gibson cruises as Twins top White Sox 8-1

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Kyle Gibson knew he didn't have to do too much to give his slugging teammates a chance to win on Saturday, but the Minnesota Twins starting pitcher went out and threw a gem anyway.

Gibson pitched seven strong innings, C.J. Cron and Ehire Adrianza each drove in four runs and the Twins beat the Chicago White Sox 8-1 for their 10th win in 11 games.

Gibson (5-2) gave up five hits and walked none while striking out nine. Only four White Sox batters reached second base on the day, and he retired 10 of the last 11 batters he faced.
