Oswaldo Arcia's fourth-inning two-run home run proved to be the difference as the Twins topped the Indians on Tuesday.

Monday (The re-emergence of Oswaldo Arcia) edition: Wha' Happened?

In another going-nowhere season for the Twins, the best fans can hope for are signs that certain players could be considered parts of the future. We found that out last year with Brian Dozier, who has leveled off this season after a powerful start but still projects to hit for above-average power while playing a very good second base for years to come.

The player we thought was primed for a breakout, though, was Oswaldo Arcia....

Twins 4, Indians 3: Oswaldo Arcia went boom

After it looked like this game was going to suck, it suddenly didn't suck. It looked like it was going to be another terrible, un-watchable night for us Twins fans. Jordon Schafer, batting first in place of the injured Danny Santana, drew a walk to lead-off the game, but was promptly picked off trying to steal second.

Bauer again retired the Twins in-order on only 15 pitches. In the bottom of the second, Trevor May gave up a lead-off single to...

Twins Blast Tigers, 20-6

A 6-run second and a 9-run sixth allow the Twins to wallop the spiraling Tigers.

It was 5-0 before the Indians could record the first out of the game. Then, Cleveland just started picking away. Yan Gomes took Kyle Gibson deep for a solo shot in the second. Zach Walters notched a two-run single in the...
