Santana has rough start
Blue Jays 6, Twins 4
Justin Morneau hit two home runs and drove in three in Monday's loss. (Aaron Harris/AP)
 Morneau's first dinger
 Morneau's second homer
Johan Santana gave up a homer to the first batter he faced, and that was just the beginning of a long night for the Twins ace, as he gave up three more before exiting after five innings. Justin Morneau had a solid game, with two homers and three RBIs.
