There was plenty for the Minnesota Twins to enjoy about Monday's one-sided win over the Cleveland Indians, but Justin Morneau's night has to be pretty high on the list of positives.
Morneau hit a pair of home runs and drove in a team-high four runs to help the Twins rout the Indians by a 14-3 final. It was Morneau's fourth multi-hit game in the past five days as he raised his batting average to .275 this season.
Morneau's first home run Monday came in the Twins' 10-run second inning and was one of three homers hit by Minnesota in the inning. Right after Josh Willingham homered to tie the game at 1-1 in the top of the second inning, Morneau took Indians starter Zach McAllister deep to right field to make it back-to-back homers and a 2-1 Twins lead. Morneau connected on a 2-2 curveball from McAllister.
Morneau finished the second inning with two hits in the frame. He also had a two-out RBI single as Minnesota's 11th batter of the second inning, driving in Joe Mauer from second.
