Morneau homers for Twins in 15-5 loss to Pirates

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — Justin Morneau hit a two-run homer off Ross Ohlendorf in the first inning before the Pittsburgh Pirates routed a Minnesota Twins split squad 15-5 Sunday.

Bobby Crosby hit a three-run homer of Anthony Crosby in the fourth inning. Pedro Alvarez had an RBI triple in the second.

Brian Duensing pitched two innings for the Twins and gave up three runs on four hits.

Morneau missed most of September because of a back injury last season
