While it was a wild night in Milwaukee and a wild night at Lambeau Field, a lot went on on Saturday night in the Brewers farm system. Here is a look at five standout performers in tonight’s games.

Orlando Arcia Keeps Streaking

Arcia has been on fire as of late and he continued to keep his hitting streak going tonight. While he was hitless heading into his final at-bat, he doubled to end the night and to push his streak to 13 games with is a new franchise record.

Garrett Cooper‘s Strong Start

It has only been two games so far, but Cooper has had a nice debut in Biloxi. After having a strong season in Brevard County, Cooper was promoted to AA to fill in for the injured Brett Phillips. He singled in his first game Friday night and had a three hit night tonight. While it is an extremely small AA sample size, Cooper could be a bat that could produce and find at-bats down the stretch for the struggling Nick Ramirez at first base.

Jake Gatewood Goes Yard

Gatewood was rewarded earlier in the week for his strong play in the Pioneer League with a promotion back to the Timber Rattlers. Tonight his third home run with the Rattlers (ninth overall on the season) and at just 19-years-old there are plenty more to come.

Matt Dominguez Big Night

After five innings in Colorado Springs, third baseman Matt Dominguez has gone two for three with a single and a home run. He is starting to heat up and with no one taking over the third base position, a September call-up is expected.

Malik Collymore: More Than a Throw-in?

When the Brewers traded Jonathan Broxton they not only were able to depart with a pitcher who has struggled with on the mound, but they also got a prospect. While Collymore, who was batting just .216 at the time of the trade in Rookie Ball was struggling, he has turned it on as a Brewer. Through the first two innings of his game tonight in Helena, Collymore has two singles to raise his average to .323 with the Brewers. He may never make it to the major leagues, but his impressive start to his Brewers career has been great to see.
