Second-place Twins beat AL Central-leading Royals, 2-0

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) With his pitch count well into triple-digits and the Twins clinging to a one-run lead, even Kyle Gibson thought Paul Molitor was going to bring in a reliever for him.

Then the manager stayed in the dugout with two Royals aboard in the eighth inning.

"I don't want to say I was surprised," Gibson said, "but it showed a lot of confidence in me."
