Kyle Gibson's rookie season has been filled with ups and downs, and Sunday was another down for the right-hander as the Twins lost to the Mariners, 6-4 in Seattle.

Chris Colabello hit a two-run homer to give the Twins a 2-0 lead in the second inning, but Gibson couldn't hold the lead for long.

Gibson gave up one run in the bottom of the second and four more in the fourth -- highlighted by home runs by solo homer from Michael Saunders and a three-run shot from Nick Franklin.

The Twins cut the lead to 5-4 on an RBI single from Clete Thomas and a sacrifice fly by Aaron Hicks, but that's as close as they would come.

Franklin's second homer of the game -- a solo shot in the seventh -- put the final tally on the board for in favor of the Mariners.

Franklin finished 3-4 with 2 homers and 4 RBI.

Gibson fell to 2-3 with the loss. He allowed five runs on seven hits over five innings.

Minnesota went 4-3 on the seven-game road trip.

The Twins have Monday off before starting a six-game homestand against Kansas City on Tuesday.

Note: Brian Dozier left midway through the game with a stiff back. He is listed as day-to-day.
