Brewers fourth-round selection Demi Orimoloye continued a torrid stretch for the organization's Arizona League squad, hitting two homers and collecting seven RBIs in a 10-5 win over the AZL Dodgers on Wednesday night.

The African-born Canadian outfielder finished 3-for-4 and has hit in eight straight contests. He's also swatted three homers and notched 10 RBIs in the past two games. Drafted No. 121 overall, Orimoloye turned down a scholarship offer from Oregon to sign with Milwaukee on June 18.

Just 18 years old, he started hot with five hits in his first two professional games and has recorded five dingers and 17 RBIs in 15 games.

Originally from Uganda, Orimoloye will become the first African-born player in Major League history if he makes it to the big leagues.
