At first glance, Sam Gibbons isn't all that impressive.
The Cedar Rapids Kernels right-hander isn't overpowering on the mound but all he has done recently is win.
Gibbons had his scoreless innings streak snapped at 28 1/3 on Saturday night. However, those runs came in his final inning of work as he went seven, allowing six hits and one earned run as the Kernels downed Bowling Green, 8-2, before a crowd of 5,391 at Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The solid work turned in by Gibbons hasn't gone unnoticed by his manager.
"For me, it's just his aggressiveness," said Kernels skipper Jake Mauer of Gibbons' scoreless streak. "He is locating his fast ball, moving it around, sinking it. He has got a lot of ground ball outs."
