MINNEAPOLIS, July 4 (UPI) -- Rookie Justin Morneau and Corey Koskie hit two-run homers Friday night as Minnesota snapped a four-game losing streak by downing Cleveland, 9-2.
The two homers were part of a wild game that included five ejections.
Morneau's homer staked the Twins to a 2-0 lead in the second inning. After Jody Gerut's RBI double halved the deficit in the third, Koskie responded in the bottom half as his homer gave Minnesota a 4-1 lead.
Both benches emptied, leading to the ejection of Hunter, Davis, both managers and Cleveland's C.C. Sabathia, the Indians' starter Thursday.
