Justin Morneau hasn't looked like this in a long time - healthy, happy and dangerous.

The Twins first baseman launched two Hiroki Kuroda pitches out of the park Wednesday night, April 18, as he drove in three and scored three in a 6-5 victory over the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.

"It feels good," he said. "It's been kind of a long road, but obviously it's not the end. Hopefully it's the start of being the hitter I'm used to being."

Two season-ending concussions and injuries to his neck, wrist, knee and foot have all conspired to keep Morneau mostly on the bench the past few years. And though he was in the lineup, Morneau wasn't nearly the player he was, say, when he won the 2006 American League Most Valuable Player Award.
