Continued: Twins' Willingham gets mental break

Class AAA Rochester righthander Kyle Gibson had his best outing of the year Sunday, taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning before finishing with a three-hit complete-game shutout as the Red Wings beat Lehigh Valley 11-0.

Gibson needed only 93 pitches for his gem — 58 were strikes, 35 were balls. He walked two and struck out eight, improving to 3-5 with a 3.25 ERA.

The Twins have wanted Gibson to show more consistency, so his next start will be important. Before Sunday, his previous outing lasted three innings. Before that, he pitched a complete game. Before that, he was knocked out in the fifth. Before that, he pitched 6 ⅔ scoreless innings.

Colabello honored

Class AAA Rochester first baseman Chris Colabello was named Twins minor league player of the week. He batted .560 in seven games with three home runs and eight RBI.
