Minnesota’s Justin Morneau was 3-for-4 with two RBI to lead the Twins in a 3-2 victory over the Phillies at Target Field last night. Morneau ripped a go-ahead RBI single in the eighth for Minnesota, which had lost four of its previous five. Oswaldo Arcia also poked an RBI double while Brian Duensing picked up the win in relief. Glen Perkins locked down his 14th save in the victory. Ryan Howard and Michael Young each drove in a run for Philadelphia, which has dropped four straight. Cole Hamels pitched six innings of two-run ball in the start but it was Mike Adams that suffered the loss in relief. The same two teams play tonight in the Twin Cities.
