Joe Mauer and Brian Dozier both homered, Kevin Correia earned his first win of the season and the Minnesota Twins ended their four-game losing streak by beating the Baltimore Orioles 6-1 Saturday.

Mauer had three hits and four RBIs. His three-run shot off reliever Brad Brach in the seventh inning broke open the game.

Dozier's eighth homer, a solo shot off Wei-Yin Chen (3-2) in the third, gave the Twins the lead for good.

Correia (1-3) worked efficiently through Baltimore's lineup, allowing five hits in seven innings. He won for the first time since last Sept. 1, a span of nine starts.
