Brooks Conrad, the last player cut from the Brewers' Spring Training camp, has been on fire for Triple-A Nashville. He homered for the third straight game Wednesday to extend his hitting streak to 10 games. The Brewers will have to clear a 40-man roster spot before promoting him for Friday's game.
The Brewers are adding a wrinkle to their annual S.C.O.R.E. For Excellence program, challenging students at five Milwaukee schools to improve their grades over the course of a month. All of the participating students will get tickets to a game this season, and the most improved grade level at each school will get a T-shirt for each student, a visit from a Brewers player and $2,500 to improve academic achievement.
S.C.O.R.E. is an acronym for School, Community, Opportunities, Role Models and Excellence with an emphasis toward education, interaction and life skills. Brewers players and coaches will visit Milwaukee-area schools on May 21 to engage students in a dialogue about the importance of those elements.
