Gibson, Sanchez set to open 3-game series

Updated: August 11, 2017

The last time Kyle Gibson faced the Tigers, he took a three-hit shutout bid into the eighth inning before giving up three runs. It was the only victory the Twins picked up during their three-game series last month at Target Field. It’s the way all three Tigers-Twins series have gone so far this season, with Detroit taking two of three.

Minnesota enters the series on a five-game winning streak and a half-game behind the Mariners and Rays for the second American League Wild Card spot. The Twins are also 3 1/2 games behind the Indians in the AL Central.
