Keys to Victory

The biggest key to a victory is a good performance by Kuroda. If he can give the Yankees another strong outing, the hitting will take care of the rest. Keeping the ball down and finishing hitters off with good off-speed pitches will be key. Another important factor in a Yankees’ victory is closing the door. The bullpen must continue finishing games strong. This will not only allow them to win today, but make the playoffs.
