Morneau's mad dash pays off
First baseman's winning run caps Twins' All-Star experience
NEW YORK -- Twins first baseman's Justin Morneau's instant analysis of the situation was not a positive one.He did not deem this to be the perfect opportunity for the American League to win the longest of the 79 All-Star Games on Tuesday. "One of the slowest guys on the field on third," Morneau said, "and a semi-shallow sac fly."
|"It was about as close as you can get. I thought I was out until I saw him reach across for the ball then have to come back to make the tag. My foot just barely made it in."|
