Dozier’s HR backs Colon’s gem in Twins’ win

Updated: August 10, 2017

MILWAUKEE — Bartolo Colon is proving there is still something left in his 44-year-old tank. The veteran right-hander followed last week’s complete-game victory over the Rangers with seven scoreless innings against the Brewers on Wednesday, leading the Twins to a 4-0 win at Miller Park.

Colon yielded five hits, all singles, to spoil the home debut of Brewers pitching prospect Brandon Woodruff, who allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings. Brian Dozier, who will be wearing the nickname “Doz” on the back of his jersey for Players Weekend, led the Twins’ offense with a solo homer, his sixth in his past nine games, after hitting his first career grand slam on Tuesday.
