Justin Morneau snapped homerless streak, high-fived invisible teammates

Jun 20, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

Twins first baseman Justin Morneau went deep last night for the first time since way back on April 28, snapping a career-long streak of 168 at-bats without a homer.

But when the former MVP made his way back into the dugout looking for some congratulations the Twins jokingly ignored him, at which point Morneau took matters into his own hands (sort of):

Morneau explained afterward: “You can stand there and look like an idiot or high-five the air like an idiot. I chose to high-five the air like an idiot. It was fun.”

    I was at the game last night, so I missed that little tidbit. It was a nice shot, and put the game out of reach, though. I hope to see a power surge here in the next few weeks. If nothing else, it’ll up his trade value. I’ll be sad to see him go, though.
