DENVER – Kevin Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday.
Correia (5-11) scattered seven hits and cooled off the power-hitting Rockies, who stranded 10 baserunners and were kept in the yard after slugging eight home runs in their previous two games. He walked one and struck out one in snapping a hard-luck three-game losing streak during which he had received no run support.
The Twins were shut out in the last two losses for Correia, who helped the Twins offense with a run-scoring double for his first hit of the season and first RBI in three years.
Tyler Matzek (1-4) allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings.
