     TORONTO (AP) - 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.

     TORONTO (AP) - Minnesota Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey has undergone elbow surgery and will be sidelined for at least two months.  Pelfrey, who had Tommy John surgery on the same elbow in 2012, had scar tissue removed Tuesday to relieve pressure on a nerve. The problem had been causing tingling in his fingers since spring training and led to reduced velocity on his pitches.  The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews, who also operated on Pelfrey in 2012.
 
     A nine-year veteran who has also pitched for the New York Mets, Pelfrey is 0-3 with a 7.99 ERA in five starts this season.  Pelfrey has been sidelined since May 2 with a strained left groin, and his velocity dropped even more while he was pitching at Triple-A on a rehab assignment. That led to tests, which revealed the nerve issue.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Twins have added their latest local player to the organization.  Second baseman Pat Kelly, a product of Red Wing High School who played three seasons in college at Nebraska, has decided to skip his senior year and sign with the Twins. The Huskers announced the news on Tuesday.
 
     Kelly was drafted in the 12th round by the Twins last week. He was a two-time first-team All-Big Ten selection and a career .319 hitter, and he started the last 135 games for Nebraska. Kelly posted a .990 fielding percentage with only three errors in 2014.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed draft pick Jerick McKinnon to a contract.  The Vikings signed McKinnon, a third-round running back from Georgia Southern, on Tuesday. He was the last player unsigned from the Vikings' 2014 class.
 
     McKinnon started 31 of his 47 games at college, lining up at quarterback, wide receiver, running back and cornerback.  He rushed for more than 100 yards in 17 games, finishing his career at Georgia Southern with 3,899 yards rushing and 42 touchdowns rushing.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A list of requests by the NFL of cities bidding for the Super Bowl go "way overboard" in the eyes of Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton.
 
     Still, he says the benefits of having pro football's 2018 championship game outweigh the perks the host committee may have granted in it. Dayton addressed the topic Tuesday, days after the Minneapolis Star Tribune documented freebies the NFL expects of its hosts. The state's Super Bowl bid committee insists any costs - from extra police to free hotel rooms and entertainment venues - will be covered by private dollars.
 
     Minnesota's bid hasn't been released, with a stadium authority citing exemptions to public data laws. Dayton says he'd have "no problem" with releasing more information but he deferred to lawyers involved in the project.

     MIAMI (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs have a two-games-to-one lead in the NBA Finals following an incredible shooting performance in the first half of Tuesday's 111-92 blowout over the Heat in Miami.
 
     The Spurs made 19 of their first 21 shots and fired at a 76-percent clip in the best-shooting half in NBA Finals history. Kawhi Leonard hit his first six shots while scoring 18 of his career-high 29 points. Leonard had been held to just 18 points over the first two games of the series.  Danny Green also had a strong first half, scoring 13 points on 6 of 6 from the floor.
 
     San Antonio also was 7-for-10 from 3-point range in taking a 71-50 lead into halftime. Green and Parker both finished with 15 points, while Tim Duncan added 14 points and a team-high six rebounds.
 
     The Heat eventually went on a 10-0 run late in the third quarter to pull within 81-74. But they couldn't get any closer the rest of the way as Miami ended a playoff team-record 11-game home winning streak that began with a loss to the Spurs in Game 1 of last year's finals.
 
     Dwyane Wade helped the Heat close the gap by scoring 16 of his 22 points in the second half. LeBron James also finished with 22 points, just six coming after intermission. Rashard Lewis was the only other Heat starter to score in double digits, providing 14 points.
 
     Game 4 is Thursday in Miami.

     NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Knicks have introduced Derek Fisher as their new head coach.  Fisher agreed to replace Mike Woodson, who was fired by new Knicks' president Phil Jackson. His hiring comes days after he finished his 18th season as a player, a career that included five championships while playing for Jackson with the Lakers.
 
     The Knicks went 37-45 and missed the playoffs this season, just a year after winning the Atlantic Division and advancing to the Eastern Conference semifinals.

     UNDATED (AP) - Coors Field used to be the site of many slugfests before Colorado Rockies officials started to put baseballs in a humidor a few years ago. The humidor was of no use on Tuesday as the Rockies and Braves combined for 23 runs and 29 hits in Atlanta's 13-10 victory in Denver.
 
     Andrelton Simmons launched a grand slam to cap the Braves' seven-run first inning. Freddie Freeman and Evan Gattis added solo shots and finished with two RBIs apiece. Gattis also had three hits and scored four times in the Atlanta's second straight victory.
 
     Braves starter Mike Minor was unable to get the win despite being staked to a 7-0 lead. Minor allowed eight runs and 11 hits in four-plus innings.
 
     Elsewhere in the majors:
 
     - Washington beat San Francisco 2-1 as Doug Fister allowed eight hits in seven shutout innings. Denard Span opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly before Jayson Werth added an RBI single, both coming in the fifth inning of the Nationals' ninth victory in 11 games.
 
     - Josh Beckett struck out seven while holding the Reds to two hits in six shutout innings of the Dodgers' 6-1 win at Cincinnati. Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run single and Andre Ethier, Dee Gordon and Adrian Gonzalez each added RBI doubles in the Dodgers' third straight win.
 
     - The Mariners had won eight of nine before Vidal Nuno held them to a run and four hits while pitching into the sixth inning of the Yankees' 3-2 win at Seattle. Derek Jeter had two hits and scored the tiebreaking run on Jacoby Ellsbury's RBI single in the eighth.
 
     - Colin Cowgill ended a marathon and beat his former team by hitting a walkoff homer in the 14th inning of the Angels' 2-1 triumph over the Athletics in Anaheim. The game-winning blast came long after Los Angeles starter Hector Santiago held the Oakland to three hits while fanning eight in six shutout innings.
 
     - Brandon Workman was terrific in Boston's 1-0 victory in Baltimore, limiting the Orioles to one hit over 6 2/3 innings. Mike Napoli's RBI single helped Workman picked up his first win as a starter since last July and pushed the Red Sox to their sixth victory in eight games.
 
     - Kansas City is back at .500 after Eric Hosmer, Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas homered in the Royals' 9-5 triumph over Cleveland. Jason Vargas is 6-2 after giving up three runs in 6 2/3 innings.
 
     - Christian Yelich was 4-for-6 with four RBIs in Miami's 8-5 win at Texas. The Marlins blew a 4-1 lead and trailed 5-4 until Yelich hit a two-run single in the seventh to send Miami to its second straight win.
 
     - Taylor Teagarden hit a grand slam in his New York Mets debut to lead a 6-2 win over Milwaukee. Daniel Murphy added a two-run homer and Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed a run and three hits in six innings to help the Mets end a six-game losing streak.
 
     - Tampa Bay made it 14 losses in 15 games as Adam Wainwright tossed seven shutout innings to lead St. Louis past the Rays 1-0. Matt Holliday's sixth-inning homer allowed Wainwright to pick up his ninth win.
 
     - Marlon Byrd belted a tiebreaking, three-run homer in the fourth inning and finished with four RBIs in Philadelphia's 5-2 triumph over San Diego. A.J. Burnett was sharp over 7 2/3 innings, giving up two runs and just three hits.
 
     - Anthony Rizzo was 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, three RBIs and three runs scored in the Chicago Cubs' 7-3 victory at Pittsburgh. Travis Wood held the Pirates to three runs despite yielding nine hits in 6 2/3 innings, including Andrew McCutchen's two-run homer.
 
     - Bronson Arroyo improved to 6-4 by allowing a run and six hits in seven innings of Arizona's 4-1 victory over Houston. The game was tied 1-1 until Martin Prado led off the bottom of the seventh with a triple and scored on Aaron Hill's sacrifice fly.
 
     - The Tigers and White Sox were rained out in Chicago. No makeup date has been announced.

     SEAL BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Former big-league pitcher Bob Welch has died at the age of 57.  Welch broke into the majors in 1978 and finished 211-146 with a 3.47 ERA in 17 seasons with the Dodgers and Athletics. He played on five pennant-winners and two World Series champions.

    Welch figured prominently on Oakland that won three straight AL championships from 1988-90. Welch won the AL Cy Young Award after going 27-6 with a 2.95 ERA in 1990. He remains the last pitcher to win as many as 25 games in a season.
 
     Authorities have not released the cause of death. Police said officers responded to a call for medical aid and found Welch dead in the bathroom area.
