With each passing day, Justin Morneau grows more confident his concussion issues are behind him, but Sunday brought another test -- surviving the celebration that comes after hitting a game-ending home run.
Morneau's second homer of the day and 19th of the season was a laser beam off Vinnie Pestano that stayed just inside the right-field foul pole, giving the Twins an 8-7 victory over Cleveland at Target Field.
The Twins gathered around home plate to greet Morneau and gave him a slight pounding, as everyone jumped up and down. Then, during Morneau's postgame television interview, two teammates doused him with a cooler of ice water.
