Brian Dozier cranked up for the Home Run Derby at the All-Star game with two homers and the Minnesota Twins beat the Colorado Rockies 13-5 on Sunday.

Dozier hit a solo homer in the eighth and added a three-run shot an inning later for his first career multihomer game. The second baseman will be one of the participants for Monday’s Home Run Derby at his home ballpark, Target Field.

Late fill-in Chris Parmelee ignited a five-run first inning for the Twins with a two-run single. He replaced outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who was scratched with the flu.

Hughes (10-5) picked up his 10th win despite allowing five runs and 10 hits in five innings. It was his first appearance at Coors Field.

Brett Anderson (0-3) was rusty in his first outing since April as he allowed six runs — five earned — in five innings.
