MINNEAPOLIS -- Kyle Gibson wasnt dominant in his first major league start, but he still pitched well enough to make a bit of Minnesota Twins history and give the team a reason to be optimistic about the future of its pitching staff. Four years after being Minnesotas top pick in the 2009 draft, Gibson pitched six solid innings, and Trevor Plouffe homered to help the Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 6-2 on Saturday. The long road from draft day to starting pitcher included a Tommy John-surgery detour, but it ultimately ended with Gibson becoming Minnesotas first first-round pick to win a start in his major league debut. He did it in front of about 30 family members and friends. "It was an amazing day, really," Gibson said. "I was pretty nervous the last couple of days leading up to it, and was able to calm the nerves somehow. I think seeing a couple of familiar faces before I started throwing, and a little prayer before the game definitely helped me calm my nerves, but it was a great day." Gibson (1-0) allowed two runs and eight hits, and he struck out five. He allowed two runs in the third inning on RBI singles by Alcides Escobar and Salvador Perez, and he hit Escobar in the fifth. But he worked out of several jams and recorded his first 1-2-3 inning in the sixth thanks to some nice defence by Pedro Florimon at short. "Weve been waiting for this for a while, and Im sure he has, too," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "Going through the elbow thing, and all the rehab and all the hard work that hes put in, its a big moment. A big moment for him." Gibson had plenty of early help as Minnesota scored five in the first inning. Wade Davis (4-6) was yanked after giving up another run in the second with no one out. The one-inning outing marked Davis shortest outing of the season for the Royals, who have lost seven of 10. "Never," Davis said when asked if hed ever had a similar outing. "Not that short, anyways. Just frustrating to look back and look how that played out." On Friday night, the Royals hit a season-high four homers against the Twins. They couldnt muster much of anything against Gibson through six innings, or against relievers Brian Duensing, Casey Fien or Glen Perkins. Kansas City loaded the bases with one out against Fien in the eighth, but Lorenzo Cain and Miguel Tejada both struck out swinging. "We got kind of put in a hole early there," first baseman Eric Hosmer said. "We were trying to inch back, and inch back. Just fell short." Gibsons long-awaited arrival to the Twins rotation came this week after starter Mike Pelfrey was placed on the disabled list because of a strained back. He received the loudest cheers during pregame introductions, and he delighted the crowd by striking out slugger Billy Butler to end the first inning. "I think everybody in this room knows that feeling the first day that they step out there, nerves are going, but he handled it about as good as you could," catcher Joe Mauer said. Minnesota had been outscored 74-39 in the first inning this season, but the Twins pounced right away on Davis, who gave up a two-run double to Justin Morneau and a two-run homer to Plouffe. Florimons RBI-single made it 5-0, and Gibson calmly handled the Royals lineup the rest of the way with pitches that consistently reached into the 90-mph range. "You hear a lot about him, and hes got great makeup and great pitches, and hes going to be good one," Mauer said. NOTES: The Royals designated OF Jeff Francoeur for assignment after the game to make room for 2B Johnny Giavotella, who was called up from Triple-A Omaha. . Davis had been 3-0 in eight career appearances against the Twins. ... It took Davis 53 pitches to get through the first inning. It was the most first-inning pitches by a major-league starting pitcher since Wandy Rodrigues threw 55 on Aug. 1, 2007, at Atlanta for Houston. Davis threw 69 before being relieved by Will Smith in the second. "He fought his command. His stuff was OK, but he just didnt locate. Ive never seen a 50-pitch inning," Royals manager Ned Yost said. . Plouffe stretched his hitting streak to 11 games, the second longest of his career. His highest is a 17-games spurt from June 30-July 19, 2012. ... Gibson is the eighth rookie used by the Twins this season. ...

"It has been both a privilege and a challenge to be on the National Team for the last five years and I am grateful for the opportunity," said Ralph. "I would like to thank Skate Canada for all the support through the years, and wish everyone well for the future." "For eight years Kharis and Asher were mainstays on the internationaal scene.dddddddddddd Their hard work and determination resulted in them being one of very few teams to have ever represented Canada at both a junior and a senior world championship", said Mike Slipchuk, High Performance Director, Skate Canada. "Kharis positive attitude and charismatic personality made her a role model for other skaters and she will be truly missed." Ralphs immediate plans include finishing her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto and then to pursue graduate studies. The 22-year-old Toronto native hopes to stay involved in the sport, possibly in the area of judging or as a technical specialist. Hill is currently looking for a new partner and hopes to continue competing in ice dance.
