Whatever mental hangups have clouded the Angels' start, Torii Hunter is immune.

The veteran Angels' right fielder struck his third home run in four games Monday, finishing with three runs batted in as the Angels withstood a late rally and defeated the Minnesota Twins, 4-3, at Angel Stadium.

"I'm trying to get it going, that's all I'm trying to do," Hunter said.

The Twins scored all their runs in the eighth inning, forcing starting pitcher C.J. Wilson (3-2) to depart after giving up only three singles and a walk in his first seven innings.
