MINNEAPOLIS - Justin Morneau hit his second homer of the game in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Minnesota Twins to an 8-7 win over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday.
With one out in the ninth, Morneau hit the first pitch from Indians reliever Vinnie Pestano (3-2) just inside the right field foul pole for his 19th homer of the season. Morneau, who has four two-homer games this season, also hit a two-run shot to right in the bottom of the third.
Brian Duensing (4-2) pitched 1 1-3 innings of scoreless relief to pick up the victory for the Twins. Minnesota's Joe Mauer had three hits -- a single, double and triple -- and scored twice.
Carlos Santana had three hits, including a home run, and scored twice for Cleveland.
