Arcia brings dash of flare, loads of power to Twins

MINNEAPOLIS -- Oswaldo Arcia took a second to admire his work. The Twins right fielder had just crushed a ball almost clear out of Target Field for his first career grand slam, and he wanted to make sure he saw the ball land more than 400 feet from home plate.
