Minnesota shuts out Detroit 2-0
(DETROIT) – Kyle Gibson faced Miguel Cabrera with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, clinging to a one-run lead. He delivered the pitch and got the result he wanted. Gibson's sinker inside was hit into an inning-ending double play to help the Minnesota keep their slim lead in a 2-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night. Gibson threw seven innings and Eduardo Escobar hit a solo homer in the third and drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth, helping Minnesota win three straight for the first time in nearly a month and pull within three games of the AL Central-leading Tigers. Gibson (6-5) allowed five hits and two walks while striking out three. He threw seven scoreless innings for a second straight start and held an opponent without a run for the third time in four outings. Glen Perkins gave up one hit in the ninth, but picked up his 17th save in 19 chances. Drew Smyly (3-4) gave up one run, four hits and three walks over six innings. Al Alburquerque and Joba Chamberlain each threw a scoreless inning of relief. Minnesota added to its lead in the ninth against former Twin Joe Nathan. Since a 27-12 start, Detroit has lost 17 of 24 games and it has struggled even more at home lately, losing 11 of 15 at Comerica Park.


Royals beat White Sox 7-2
(CHICAGO) – Jeremy Guthrie was pleased with the way he was pitching over the previous two months. He just didn't have anything to show for it. He wasn't happy with much of his performance Friday night, but it was good enough to snap an 11 game winless streak. Lorenzo Cain had a two-run double to highlight a five-run first inning, Guthrie pitched into the sixth inning and the Kansas City Royals extended their winning streak to five games with a 7-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox. Guthrie (3-6) allowed two runs and six hits in 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander had pitched well enough to win on several occasions, but received the lowest run support in the AL (2.59) during that span. That wasn't an issue Friday. Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler each had two RBI's, including a run-scoring single in the first inning, for Kansas City. Jose Quintana (3-7) never recovered from the slow start, allowing six runs and eight hits in six innings. Jose Abreu went 1 for 4 with an RBI for the White Sox. Chicago loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom half of the inning as Alexei Ramirez and Dayan Viciedo singled and Alejandro De Aza walked, but the White Sox pushed across just one run, on a walk to Adam Eaton.

Cubs double up Phillies 2-1
(PHILADELPHIA) - Even Starlin Castro knew Roberto Hernandez didn't hit him on purpose. Jake Arrieta threw seven impressive innings, Castro hit a two-run homer and the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 2-1 Friday night in matchup of last-place teams. A strange ejection occurred in the sixth inning when Hernandez was tossed by plate umpire Mark Ripperger after hitting Castro on the left arm with a fastball. There were no previous warnings, hit batters, or inside pitches. Phillies manager Ryne Sandbert also was ejected after he came out to argue. Arrieta (2-1) allowed two hits and no runs, tying a career high with nine strikeouts. He didn't give up a hit until Domonic Brown sliced a double just inside the left field line with one out in the fifth.The Phillies were seeking their first four-game winning streak since last June 2-6. Hernandez (2-5) allowed two runs and three hits in 5 2/3 innings. He walked Anthony Rizzo leading off the fourth. Castro then drove his ninth homer out to left.
