TORONTO -- The Toronto Blue Jays offence was one of the most feared in the major leagues through May and early June. The inevitable cold spell has arrived. The Minnesota Twins blanked Toronto 4-0 on Tuesday night at Rogers Centre, handing the Blue Jays their third shutout loss in four games. "Thats the way it goes sometimes," said Toronto manager John Gibbons. "When youre not hitting, youre not scoring runs, youve got to match them on the mound and we didnt do that." Twins starter Kevin Correia (3-7) threw six-plus innings and three relievers completed the seven-hit shutout in front of an announced crowd of 20,681. Brian Dozier homered as Minnesota (30-33) won for the second time in six games. Toronto (39-27) pulled out a 5-4 walkoff win in the series opener Monday after dropping a pair of 5-0 decisions to the St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend. The Twins and Blue Jays will close out the three-game series with a matinee on Wednesday. "We just couldnt get anything going offensively," Gibbons said. "I mean thats what it comes down to. Three out of four days shut out, you dont expect that. But quick turnaround tomorrow." The Blue Jays remained 5 1/2 games up on second-place Baltimore in the American League East standings. The Boston Red Sox blanked the Orioles 1-0. Danny Santana opened the game with a walk and scored when Dozier homered in his first at-bat for the second straight night. He turned on an 0-1 pitch from Toronto starter J.A. Happ (5-3) for his 14th home run of the season. The Blue Jays had some chances early on but stranded five runners over the first two innings. Correia settled down after that and retired 13 straight batters before giving up a two-out single to Adam Lind in the sixth. "It looked like he was kind of searching to find it but once it got going he got his confidence, (he) started making pitches," said Twins manager Ron Gardenhire. "Great performance by him." Minnesota padded its lead in the fourth inning when third baseman Juan Francisco hurried a throw to first base and launched it high, allowing two runs to come across. Chad Jenkins relieved Happ after the play and allowed just one hit over 3 1/3 scoreless innings. Its the first time Toronto has been shut out in three of four games since 1990 when they failed to score over a three-game stretch. "You cant put up seven runs every game, its just impossible," Jenkins said. "But theres no doubt that these guys will come back and well start scoring more runs and start winning more ball games." Correias night came to an end when Dioner Navarro singled to open the seventh. The right-hander gave up six hits and a walk and had one strikeout. Happ allowed six hits, three earned runs, three walks and struck out three over 3 2/3 innings. It was Minnesotas fifth shutout of the season and Torontos fourth shutout loss of the year.

The tweets were not deleted. James needed intravenous fluids after the game, during which temperatures inside San Antonios AT&T Center were measured at nearly 90 degrees after the arenas air conditioning system failed. The Spurs won the game 110-95, pulling away in the final 3:59 after James left the game for good with cramps ravaging his left leg. "Our apologies for our response to fans tweets during (Thursday) nights Heat vs. Spurs game," Gatorade said in a release. "We got caught up in the heat of the battle. As a longtime partner of the Miami Heat, we support the entire team." Gatorade has a long business relationship with the NBA.dddddddddddd James is an endorser of Powerade, a Gatorade rival.

He may be paid by Powerade, but it appeared James was drinking Gatorade at least once during Game 1 of the finals. Video and photos taken of James on the Heat bench during the second half showed him holding what appeared to be a Gatorade bottle with the label removed, as has been the case on many other occasions. The original tweet posted by Gatorade came late in Game 1, saying, "With a game this hot, were right at home." The Spurs said a power outage was to blame for the air conditioning failure. The team announced Friday it had been repaired. ' ' '
