O's beaten in 12th on homer by Morneau


MINNEAPOLIS -- They came eight innings apart, but Minnesota's Justin Morneau walloped two long homers and the Twins beat the Orioles, 7-5, last night in a 12-inning marathon.

Facing Orioles reliever Bruce Chen (0-6) with two outs in the 12th, Morneau crushed a 437-foot, two-run homer to right-center for the game-winner in a contest of near misses and crazy base running.
