FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Justin Morneau continued his recent resurgence at the plate, going 3 for 4 with a two-run home run in the Minnesota Twins' 11-7 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday. Morneau has spent time at designated hitter the last week, trying to recapture his swing. He's also left the door open for a permanent shift away from first base. It's working. The former American League MVP is 7 for 14 his last four games with a double and three home runs after a slow spring start. The outburst came at the expense of Phillies starter Vance Worley, who gave up 11 runs -- five earned -- on 11 hits in four innings. Francisco Liriano gave up two runs on eight hits in four innings for Minnesota. Luke Hughes, one of the infielders vying for a spot and waiting to see where Morneau plays, went 2 for 4 with a three-run home run, his team-leading fifth. Hector Luna went 3 for 5 with a home run for Philadelphia.
