AL Cy Young Award contender Zack Greinke allowed the Twins a few prime opportunities in winning his 16th game (seven hits, two walks over seven innings), but nearly every time he did, he slammed the door shut with one or more of his eight strikeouts. Yuniesky Betancourt hit a three-run homer and scored on a wild pitch.
