MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Torii Hunter hit his first home run for Minnesota since 2007, helping Trevor May and the Twins beat the Cleveland Indians 7-2 Sunday.

Hunter, who rejoined the Twins this year after five seasons with the Los Angeles Angels and two with Detroit, hit a three-run homer in the sixth off former Minnesota pitcher Anthony Swarzak for a 7-1 lead.

Making his second start since coming up from the minors when Ricky Nolasco went on the disabled list, May (1-1) allowed one run and four hits in six innings. With Ervin Santana serving a drug suspension, May is bidding to remain in the rotation when Nolasco returns from elbow inflammation.

Cleveland scored on Michael Brantley’s RBI single in the first and Carlos Santana’s ninth-inning home run off J.R. Graham, the 100th home run of Santana’s big league career.

TJ House (0-2) gave up five runs and seven hits in 5 2-3 innings, leaving him with a 14.14 ERA.
