Welcome BACK to the Bigs!

It’s Official… Brooks Conrad is OFFICIALLY back in the Big Leagues. Time for him to jam out to a little CashboX:

Why is it official? Well, Brooks Conrad is on his second tour of the Majors in 2012. His first round from May 4-19 didn’t go so well. He failed to get a hit in 21 At-Bats and managed to touch 1B only once on a walk. He was then optioned back to AAA Nashville to make room for Carlos Gomez. He was then recalled on May 27 to replace and injured Travis Ishikawa. He went 0-for-3 in his first 3 AB, but in his 4th, he took an Erik Bedard pitch and deposited it into the right field Beer-pen. A 2-run homer to lead the Brewers past the Pirates 5-1. That raised his 2012 Batting Average to a whopping 0.034.

What makes this story so interesting is that Conrad still has a 16 game hit streak in the Minors.
Yes, STILL. Prior to his first 2012 call, he had an active 10-game hit streak along with a 0.405 Batting Average, 5 homers, and 13 RBI. After his miserable 0-for-21 appearance, he returned to Nashville and exploded. In 6 games, Conrad hit 5 homers and 15 RBI (minor league total of 10 homers and 28 RBI). He also continued his minor league hit streak and it currently sits at 16.

Hopefully, this homer as uncorked his minor league stats to allow them to flow into the majors. The injury riddled Cerveceros certainly need all the help they can get.
