MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kyle Gibson matched a career high with eight strikeouts, Chris Parmelee hit a two-run single after entering the game for an injured Joe Mauer, and the Minnesota Twins beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-3 on Tuesday night.

Trevor Plouffe added four singles and Aaron Hicks two hits and an RBI for the Twins.

After getting hit in the right elbow by Andrew Chafin in the first inning, Mauer played defense in the second before coming out with a bruised elbow. The Twins say he is day to day.

Parmelee hit in Mauer's spot and singled down the left-field line to drive in Hicks and Eduardo Escobar, giving Minnesota a 3-0 lead in the second.

That was plenty of support for Gibson, who allowed one run in seven innings and won for just the second time in his last eight starts.
