Justin Morneau ripped a 7th inning grand slam off of Mitch Stetter in the 7th to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 6-3 win and a 3-game sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers at the Metrodome. The Morneau homer was somewhat controversial because just one batter earlier, Mitch Stetter appeared to hit catcher Joe Mauer on the hand with a pitch. But home plate umpire Adrian Johnson ruled foul ball, only to change the call after Twins manager Ron Gardenhire argued with him at home plate about the call. Then came Morneau's heroics.
Joe Mauer and Joe Crede also homered for the Twins, who have scored 43 runs in their last four games. Joe Baker allowed 7-hits and struck out 6 in 8 1/3 innings for the win.
Mike Cameron also hit a solo homer in the fourth and is now a member of the 250 home run and 250 stolen base club, just the 20th player to join that company. Prince Fielder also added a 2-run homer in the 9th for the Brewers. Dave Bush took the loss.
The Brewers are back home to host the St. Louis Cardinals today.
