KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Even after a lengthy replay, Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire still thinks the call was wrong. No worry. When he was ejected for arguing the play in the third inning Tuesday night, it gave him a nice vantage point -- a flat-screen TV and a comfy chair in the clubhouse -- to see Kyle Gibson shut down the Kansas City Royals for seven innings in a tense 2-1 victory. The play in question was Chris Parmelees sinking liner to left field that Alex Gordon appeared to trap while sliding. The umpires ruled it a catch, though, likely saving a run. Gardenhire quickly challenged it, only to be incensed when a review of 3 minutes, 31 seconds let it stand. A nose-to-nose confrontation with plate umpire Ted Barrett resulted in him getting tossed. "Honestly, I know youre not supposed to go out there. I just wanted to find out how that happened," Gardenhire said. "Thats the part a lot of managers are trying to figure out, what did they see? I know they dont want it to go any longer, but its gone on long enough. "I was just looking for an explanation. He threw me out really quick. He was really hot." Gibson was hot in an entirely different way. He allowed a single by Alcides Escobar in the third inning and another by Nori Aoki in the sixth over seven dazzling innings. Gibson (9-8) was at his best his last inning, too, setting down the Royals in order in the seventh on four seemingly effortless pitches. "I had a great view for it," Gardenhire said with a smile. Casey Fien worked the eighth before Glen Perkins ran into trouble in the ninth, giving up a leadoff double to Omar Infante and an RBI single to Eric Hosmer. Perkins bounced back to get three straight pop outs and record his 26th save of the season. "The loss is frustrating in general. It doesnt matter how it is," the Royals Billy Butler said. "Its not fun to lose, especially in a 2-1 game like that. We should have put up more runs." Josh Willingham hit a sacrifice fly in the third inning and Brian Dozier provided a run-scoring single in the fifth off James Shields (9-6), who battled command all night. He threw 124 pitches -- two shy of his career high -- while walking four in only six innings. Gibson, who was shelled by Tampa Bay his last time out, has made a habit of rebounding back from ugly outings. He followed a miserable performance against the Angels with a strong one against Texas, and a lousy start against the Yankees with six shutout innings against Seattle. "I dont know what it was tonight," he said. "I just had a lot of confidence."

His action on Friday was defiance. The Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks opened training camp and Lynch chose to stay away because of his current contract situation. Beast Modes status: absent and unhappy. "Everybody is calling him, but its a business at the end of the day," Seattle defensive end Michael Bennett said. "... So all you can do is support him. You want him to be here, but as a player you understand the business side too." Lynchs absence was expected after former teammate Michael Robinson said Thursday night on NFL Network that Lynch would not show for the opening day of camp. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said he was disappointed Lynch was not present, while reiterating the team wants him there and intends on him being an integral part of their plans for this season. But the message was clear that Seattle put a plan in place before Lynch was signed to a four-year contract in 2012 and the Seahawks management is not inclined to stray from those plans. "Weve had a substantial plan working for us for years now and Marshawn was a big part of this plan. Just a couple of years back we made a big statement and made a big effort for him and we wish that he was with us now," Carroll said. "But this is a tremendous opportunity for the guys getting their shot. Robert Turbin and Christine Michael theyre ready to go and really fired up about this opportunity and are going to try and take full advantage of it." Fridays result was building throughout the off-season with Lynch staying away from organized team activitties and rumours that he would skip Junes mandatory minicamp in protest of his contract structure.dddddddddddd Lynch showed up for the minicamp in June to avoid a hefty fine. But he finally decided to make a stand with the start of training camp. Lynch can make up to $5.5 million this season in base pay and roster bonuses. Its the third year of a four-year contract and hes scheduled to make $5.5 million in base salary in 2015. He now faces fines of $30,000 for each day of camp he misses. Carroll said hes remained in contact with Lynch throughout the off-season. "Im hoping that he will be back with us," Carroll said. Lynch has been the workhorse for Seattles offence since his arrival via trade during the 2010 season. Lynch has 1,066 carries for 4,624 yards and 41 touchdowns in the regular season since joining the Seahawks. He brought a physical style that helped define a young team early in Carrolls tenure. "The attitude that he brought these past few years has been significant. When we were trying to make a mark that we were a physical, tough football team he stood right at the front of that and was a big part of it," Carroll said. "But I think we have accomplished that now and that is our mentality and makeup. Were grateful that he was part of that and would like to get him back into it." In Lynchs place, Turbin and Michael took most of the reps at running back Friday. Turbin is entering his third season, while Michael barely saw the field last year as a rookie as he struggled with the transition between college and the NFL. "We all wish he was here," Michael said. "Hes a great leader. We learn a lot from him. Hell be back soon."
