MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Justin Morneau hit the go-ahead single in the eighth inning to cap a three-hit night and carry the Minnesota Twins to a 3-2 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday.
Jamey Carroll -- who had two hits and snapped a 0-for-24 slump -- drew a walk to start the eighth off reliever Mike Adams (1-4) and ended up on third after a Joe Mauer single and a fielder's choice.
Josh Willingham fouled out before Morneau lined a single up the middle off Antonio Bastardo to give Minnesota the lead.
Philadelphia tied it at 2 in the eighth when Ryan Howard's single off reliever Brian Duensing (1-1) scored Kevin Frandsen.
