Twins shut out Jays

TORONTO — Brian Dozier hit a two-run home run and Kevin Correia won for the first time in four starts as the Twins beat the Blue Jays 4-0 on Tuesday.

Minnesota avoided falling a season-worst five games below .500 while Toronto was shut out for the third time in four games.

For the second straight game, the Twins took a 2-0 lead before making an out. Danny Santana drew a leadoff walk, and Dozier followed with his team-leading 14th home run. Santana and Dozier hit back-to-back homers in the first inning Monday.

The Twins doubled their lead and chased J.A. Happ in the fourth. Newly signed Kendrys Morales singled, Oswaldo Arcia walked and Eduardo Nunez singled. Happ struck out Kurt Suzuki and Eduardo Escobar. But Santana got an infield single to third, and a second run scored on Juan Francisco's errant throw to first.

Correia came in 1-4 over his past six starts and 1-3 with a 7.04 ERA in four starts against Toronto. But he settled down after allowing four hits over the first two innings. He got Melky Cabrera to ground out to end the second, leaving the bases loaded, starting a stretch of 12 consecutive outs.

It was Correia's first scoreless outing since Aug. 27, 2013, when he pitched seven innings against the Royals.
