MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kyle Gibson won his fourth straight start, throwing seven strong innings, and rookie Miguel Sano hit a two-run homer to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 7-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.
Gibson (8-6) allowed only an unearned run and four hits, while Sano hit his second home run since being recalled from Double-A on July 2.
Danny Santana added two hits, including a two-run triple, for Minnesota, which enters the All-Star break having won six of seven. The Twins are in second place in the AL Central and hold the top wild-card spot.
Shane Greene (4-7) allowed seven runs on seven hits and three walks in just 4 2-3 innings for the Tigers after being recalled from Triple-A.
