Hunter makes Twins return in 9-8 win over Red Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Torii Hunter drove in a run in his first plate appearance with the Minnesota Twins in eight years, helping defeat the Boston Red Sox 9-8 on Thursday night.

Hunter, who played for the Twins from 1997-2007, finished 1-for-3. He started in right field, his projected position for the regular season.

"I haven't been here in a long time, but it seemed like old times coming back here and getting my first hit out of the way," Hunter said. "It's the first time I've played here in eight years. So I'm just excited to be back. It was a lot of fun to see the guys swing the bat like that, on both sides, actually."
