Game LXI: Red Sox @ Twins

Kyle Gibson, no relation to Mel or Kirk, returns from the DL, and hitters everywhere will tremble.

Oh, oh, Byung Ho. We still love you!

No knuckleballers today! (Knuckleball kinda sounds like an S & M thing, maybe that's what made the Twins intimidated by it.) Young, handsome (because young) BoSox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez throws a pretty hot fastball, change, and slider; the last is something of a work in progress. Digits are for Rodriguez's career, as this year he's made only two starts:

ERA H/9 K/9 BB/9 HR/9 OPS v L/R BAbip FIP
Gibson 6.10
5.2 0.9
Rodriguez 3.98

Kyle Gibson returns for the Twins. (His digits are from this season, and I include them although the injury probably skewed his numbers. Because the Twins sux, that's why I included them.) Lineups:

Bill Buckners Phil Cuzzis
Mookie Betts, RF
Eduardo Nunez, SS
Dustin Pedroia, 2B Joe Mauer, DH
Xander Bogarts, SS Robbie Grossman, LF
Big Papi, DH Plooooooufffe, 3B

박병호, 1B
Chris Young, LF Max von Kepler, RF
Travis Shaw, 3B Kurt Suzuki, C
