Keys to the game

Key 1: Patience
When one wise Chinese Proverb says " Patience is a virtue", they must have been referring to Zack Greinke. If the Twins are going to tonight, they need to take pitches, extending not only the inning but also the pitch count. The AL Cy Young winner had a rough last outing giving up four earn through six and two-thirds innings.

Key 2: The Little Things
The need to capitalize on the weak throwing arm of Jason Kendall. This will help move runner into scoring position. The Twins will need men to get runners on and advance them. Small ball could help win this game if that bats don't get going right away.
