The popular sentiment in baseball when a pitcher gets roughed up early but rebounds in later innings is that he "gave his team a chance to win." Such backhanded platitudes could be served up to Kyle Gibson after Tuesday's performance against the Royals. Gibson was rocked early on, giving up four runs after just nine pitches, but didn't allow anything more in a complete game 4-2 loss.

Against the Royals and their bullpen, though, this is reality: Gibson gave the Twins a small fraction of a chance to win and a heaping portion of a chance to lose when he put them in that 4-0 hole.
