Justin Morneau homers twice in Grapefruit League game

Finally, some signs of life from Justin Morneau.

As noted by beat writer Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, the Twins first baseman hit a two-run homer, a three-run homer and drew a walk Saturday in a 19-4 Grapefruit League win over the Rays.

Morneau, who has struggled with post-concussion syndrome for close to two years, entered the game with a rough .108/.175/.135 spring batting line. Perhaps the outburst of power will give him some confidence heading into the regular season.

The 30-year-old hit just .227/.285/.333 with four home runs and 30 RBI in 69 games last season.
