Justin Morneau went 3-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's loss against the Twins.

If the first baseman is disappointed about not being chosen to the All-Star Game, he's certainly not showing it. Morneau had three hits against his former team, raising his season line to .312/.345/.502. The move to Colorado has revived Morneau's career, and there's no reason to think he'll drop off in the second half.
