MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) Scott Diamond pitched six shutout innings and Josh Willingham hit one of Minnesota's four home runs as the Twins trounced the Seattle Mariners 10-0 Sunday.

Chris Herrmann hit his first major league homer and Ryan Doumit and Brian Dozier also connected for the Twins. Willingham drove in three runs.

The Twins won for the seventh time in nine games.

Diamond (4-4) allowed four hits, walked one and struck out three. He gave up three hits in the first inning, and little else.

Jeremy Bonderman (0-1) was hit hard in his first major league start since Oct. 1, 2010, with Detroit.

Bonderman struck out leadoff man Eduardo Escobar as part of a 1-2-3 first inning, but wound up allowing seven runs and nine hits in 4 2-3 innings.
