All-Star Futures Game 2012: Twins' Prospect Oswaldo Arcia Drives In Run In Loss

The U.S. team dominated the World team in Major League Baseball's Futures Game to kick off All-Star week at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium. The U.S. cruised to an easy 17-5 victory, but one Twins prospect helped get the World on the board.

Oswaldo Arcia, a native of Venezuela who plays this season for the Double-A New Britain Rock Cats of the Eastern League drove in a run with a double in the top of the sixth inning. His RBI double cut the U.S. lead to 6-5, but the American team scored nine times in the bottom of the inning to blow the game open.

Arcia hit .309 with seven home runs in 55 games for the High-A Fort Myers Miracle before earning a promotion. He's hit .286 in 18 games thus far at Double-A.
