It's a Morneau ball for a Morneau fan

The Twins needed a jolt. Justin Morneau provided it. And Jan Tinklenberg got the souvenir.

With Minnesota trailing by a run in the eighth inning yesterday, Morneau smacked his first homer of the season -- a 420-foot shot into the upper deck in right.

Jan made the inital kick save before another friendly fan corralled the rebound and handed her the prize.
