Impact: Twins hitters piled it on with Arcia hitting an eighth inning blast off shortstop Andrew Romine, who was filling in for a beat-up Tigers pitching staff. Arcia remains a sub-par hitter for the most part (.234/.307/.457), but has shown plenty of power on the year. The young outfielder has now matched his homer total from last season in 86 less at-bats to this point.(RotoWire, )
