Gibson gets first complete game as Twins beat Braves

Kyle Gibson ended his August woes with his first career nine-inning complete game, lifting Minnesota to a win over Atlanta.

Gibson (5-7) allowed three runs on eight hits — two in the ninth inning when game was essentially decided. He walked three and struck out six. The right-hander, who entered the game with a 7.98 ERA in three August starts, benefited from two double plays.

Trevor Plouffe and Jorge Polanco had three hits apiece for Minnesota, and Plouffe knocked in three runs. Brian Dozier, Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario each added two hits.
