Kyle Gibson was locked in Thursday night at Fenway Park.
The Minnesota Twins right-hander baffled the Boston Red Sox all night, allowing just one run in eight strong innings. The Twins would claim a 2-1 victory in Game 1 of the four-game series.
After the loss, Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts lauded the performance of the Twins right-hander, while also praising the work of Boston’s starter Brian Johnson, who didn’t allow a run in 5 2/3 innings.
