Shortstop Orlando Arcia, the Brewers' No. 4 prospect, collected five hits and fell a home run shy of the cycle Tuesday, helping Class A Advanced Brevard County defeat Lakeland, 10-4. It was the first five-hit game of his career.

Arcia went 5-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, two runs, five RBIs and a stolen base in the victory. Outfielder Tyrone Taylor, the club's No. 2 prospect, added two hits, a run and an RBI.

Arcia began his day with an RBI double in the first inning. He singled in the third inning and tripled in the fourth, giving himself time to complete the cycle. But he doubled again in the fifth inning and singled in the seventh, which proved to be his last at-bat.

Arcia is the younger brother of Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, but doesn't share his powerful bat. Orlando Arcia has hit just one home run this season. Had he connected for another in one of his final two at bats Tuesday, he would have become the second Manatee to hit for the cycle in the franchise's history. Taylor was the first to do so, achieving the feat April 29.

In 71 games this season, Arcia is hitting .278/.338/.381. He ranks eighth in the Florida State League with 13 stolen bases.
