Morneau is not in the lineup for the second game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals, mlb.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.
Morneau went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in the first game, so perhaps a bit of rest will be a good thing. The Twins have Monday off before starting a three-game series against the Phillies in which elite left-handers Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels are both scheduled to pitch. That's obviously bad news for Morneau, but at least Minnesota is scheduled to face right-handers in its other four games during the upcoming scoring period.
