Outfielder Tyrone Taylor, the Brewers' No. 2 prospect, hit for the cycle Tuesday and Class A Advanced Brevard County defeated Clearwater, 20-0. It was the first cycle in the franchise's 21-year history.

Taylor needed just four at-bats to achieve the feat. He singled in the first inning, tripled in the third, doubled in the fourth and homered in the fifth. He finished the game 5-for-5 with five runs and a walk.

Taylor began the season sluggishly and entered this week hitting .198. But he has broken out in two games against Clearwater. He collected three hits (including a home run) Monday and is now hitting .263 with a .495 slugging percentage. He has three home runs and 11 doubles in 24 games this season.

Aiding Taylor in the Manatees' offensive outburst were fellow Top 20 prospects in shortstop Orlando Arcia and outfielders Victor Roache and Michael Reed. Arcia (No. 4) went 4-for-7 with two doubles and scored three runs. Roache (No. 7) added two hits and a stolen base, while Reed (No. 15) hit his first home run of the season and stole his 13th base.
