PITCHING MATCHUP: Twins RH Kyle Gibson (4-7, 3.57 ERA) vs. Red Sox LH Brian Johnson (1-3, 3.81)

Gibson's bid for a third straight victory came to an end on Friday as he gave up four runs and six hits over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to Kansas City.   He is 1-3 with a 3.06 ERA in five career starts against the Red Sox.

Johnson is making his sixth start of the season but is slated to return to the bullpen after the outing versus the Twins.  Johnson lost to Detroit in his last turn despite allowing only two unearned runs and five hits over five innings.  Boston 9-1 in Johnson's last 10 starts.

It should be noted that the Twins are 12-5 in their last 17 overall.
