MINNEAPOLIS, June 2 (UPI) -- Josh Willingham homered and drove in three runs Sunday, backing Scott Diamond's six shutout innings in the Minnesota Twins' 10-0 whitewash of Seattle.

Willingham's two-run shot in the fifth -- one of four long balls launched by Minnesota -- put the Twins ahead 7-0. He later added an RBI single to key a 16-hit attack.

Ryan Doumit, Chris Herrmann and Brian Dozier (3-for-4) each supplied a bases-empty clout for Minnesota.

Aaron Hicks chipped in with three hits, an RBI and a run scored for Minnesota, which took the rubber match of a three-game series.

Diamond (4-4) scattered four hits and a walk while striking out three in recording his first victory since May 7.

Veteran right-hander Jeremy Bonderman (0-1), making first major-league start since 2010, was lit up for seven runs on nine hits in 4 2/3 frames for the Mariners.
