MIAMI (AP) _ With slugger Justin Morneau sidelined for the first
time in 192 games, the rest of the Minnesota Twins lineup rapped
out 17 hits and mauled the Florida Marlins 11-to-1.
Joe Mauer and Jason Bartlett drove in three runs apiece.
Morneau remained in the hospital for a second night after
bruising his right lung in a home-plate collision Friday. The 2006
American League M-V-P was expected to be released Sunday and fly
home with the team.
Carlos Silva limited Florida to four hits and one run in seven
innings. He's 5-and-8 with the win.
Josh Johnson is 0-and-2 with the loss.
