Royals can’t recover from Davis’ nightmarish start in 6-2 loss to Twins

Minnesota rookie Kyle Gibson, a Mizzou alum, made his major-league debut Saturday by working six strong innings in a 6-2 victory over the Royals at Target Field. That certainly qualifies. But it was overshadowed, at least in historical terms, by a horrific outing from Royals starter Wade Davis, who set what appears to be a major-league record for the most pitches thrown while recording three or fewer outs.
