Morneau leads Twins over Pirates and Correia

Published:

FORT MYERS (AP) -- Justin Morneau continued his surge since moving to designated hitter, going 2 for 4 with a double Saturday to help the Minnesota Twin rough up Kevin Correia and a Pittsburgh Pirates split squad in a 15-3 win.

Correia gave up 10 runs and 12 hits in 2 1-3 innings. The bad day more than doubled Correia's run total through his first 14 innings this spring.

The Twins, meanwhile, have scored seven or more runs in four of their last five games after finishing second to last in runs in the American League last year.

Denard Span went 4 for 5 with a double for the Twins and Ryan Doumit homered and had two hits.
