Santana's bat, Gibson's arm lead Twins over Astros

June 7, 2014
Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Rookie Danny Santana drove in five runs, Kyle Gibson pitched seven strong innings and the Minnesota Twins beat the Houston Astros 7-0 Saturday.

Santana, who hit his first major league home run on Friday night, flied out to lead off the first inning. He then got hits in his next four at-bats, raising his batting average to .373.

Gibson (5-5) scattered three hits and three walks while striking out five, allowing only one runner to reach second base. He was especially effective at keeping the ball on the ground —he induced 12 groundball outs, including the last nine batters he retired.

Scott Feldman (3-4) was chased in the second inning as the Twins jumped to a 3-0 lead. Feldman walked two, hit a batter and was stung by two infield errors that inning.
