Twins OF Torii Hunter goes yard twice Saturday to end slide


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2015) So much for the old slump for an old ballplayer. Twins outfielder Torii Hunter broke out in style Saturday against the host Brewers.

The 39-year-old Hunter doubled and mashed solo home runs in the sixth and ninth innings for his first multi-hit game since June 4, sweetening his slash line in the process to .266/.325/.437. He has blasted off 10 times this year.

Hunter entered with one hit in six of his last seven games, but batting .143 (7-for-49) in his last 14 games. He believes those statistics to be deceiving.

"The last couple of weeks, I've been hitting the ball well," Hunter told MLB.com. "The numbers don't show it, but it's beyond the numbers. I just have to keep that same feeling. When you have days like today, you just have to enjoy it."


Twins RF Torii Hunter continues cool-off after sizzling stretch


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

His mini-slump has weakened his slash line to a still-respectable .262/.322/.409.

"That knuckleball, you don't know what you're going to get," Hunter said, per MLB.com. "It's like a box of chocolates. Either you're going to be good, or you're going to [struggle]."
