Brian Dozier hit a two-run home run, Kevin Correia won for the first time in four starts and the Minnesota Twins beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-0 Tuesday night.

Newly signed slugger Kendrys Morales had two hits and scored a run as the Twins avoided falling a season-worst five games below .500.

The Blue Jays were 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.

Correia allowed six hits, walked one and struck out one in six innings. It was his first scoreless outing since Aug. 27, 2013.
