Boyd turned the page on that today, following in the footsteps of the rest of the Tigers' rotation with an outstanding outing against the Minnesota Twins at Comerica Park.
Gibson earned a no-decision after allowing three runs, five hits and two walks while striking out five in five innings of Minnesota's 5-3 victory over Kansas City on Thursday. He had given up only one hit all game until the bottom of the fifth inning, and even then, really only made a couple of bad pitches-one that hit Justin Upton, followed by one James McCann hit out of the park.
The Minnesota Twins will begin a three-game series with the Tigers tomorrow in Detroit.
Minnesota Twins' Max Kepler is greeted in the dugout after he and Eddie Rosario scored on a Joe Mauer single during the third inning of a baseball game against the Detroit Tigers, Wednesday, April 12, 2017, in Detroit.
"We had a lot of turbulence on our flight last night; it wasn't like we were going to panic", Molitor said.
"Immediately when I walked in, it was, 'You got a drug test, '" Romine said. Jason Castro went 2 for 4 with the Twins' lone score while Miguel Sano went 1 for 4 with a double.
OUR PICK: The Twins are a ideal 4-0 in Gibson's last four starts against the American League Central, are 6-1 in his last seven outings when he's coming off of five days of rest, and have won six of his last eight road starts.
Jordan Montgomery's charge to the Bronx
Montgomery is getting the first chance to show what he can do as the fifth starter and he'll have to pitch well to keep the job. Montgomery struck out nine and allowed just three hits and no earned runs in five innings in a High-A warm-up start last week.
Dozier ripped a 2-1 fastball over the left-center fence in the first to give the Twins a quick lead. Nick Castellanos had given Detroit a 4-3 lead with a solo homer in the seventh.
For just the second time since 1913, the Tigers have homered in each of their first seven games.
For the first time, the Twins are a billion-dollar franchise, at least according to one respected annual estimate. Tyler Collins hit an RBI single, but after James McCann's flare was caught by Dozier, the second baseman, Gibson was one out away from getting out of the jam with the lead still intact.
"It is a little odd to be backwards", Romine said. Gibson has managed to keep Cabrera (.318 average, one home run in 22 at-bats) and Victor Martinez (.259 in 27 at-bats) under control. Collins started there Wednesday and had two hits.
Fulmer would recover, but later run into trouble in the third inning.
"That was a huge play", Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.
Through seven games, Tigers starting pitchers have recorded six quality starts, good for a 2.40 ERA.
