Must See: Twins Kyle Gibson Makes Amazing Defensive Play
Minnesota Twins rookie pitcher Kyle Gibson has been opening eyes this season as a guy that can give his team a great deal of solid innings. Monday night was the fourth time in six starts that Gibson has given up one or less runs averaging six innings per start.
During the fourth inning of Monday’s game, Michael Brantley of the Cleveland Indians hit a ball deep in the hole between first and second base. Twins’ second baseman Brian Dozier made a great sliding play just to get to the ball. Dozier immediately popped up and fired over towards first only the throw was well off line.
Out of instinct Gibson was headed towards first in the event that first baseman Chris Colabello fielded the ball. Amazingly, Gibson was able to field the ball and get his foot to the bag before Brantley could get down the line.
