Morneau Returns To Lineup For Twins

By  | 

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Twins first baseman Justin Morneau is back in the lineup after missing six games with an inner ear infection.

The All-Star slugger was out all three games against Kansas City last weekend. But he was in his customary cleanup spot for Monday night's game against Baltimore.

Morneau started experiencing dizziness last week in a series at Texas. He missed three games against the Rangers, then flew home to the Twin Cities to see a specialist and was diagnosed with an inner ear infection.

Despite missing that time, Morneau still leads the American League with 94 RBIs. He's also fifth with 28 home runs.
