Conrad seeking first hit since callup
NEW YORK -- A game on Brooks Conrad's iPad was giving the Brewers' utility man a tough time Tuesday afternoon. Nothing has come easy of late.

An 0-for-4 Monday night against the Mets dropped Conrad to 0-for-15 since his promotion from Triple-A Nashville, and he finally reached base Tuesday with a pinch-hit walk. The cold spell comes after he batted .400 with five home runs in 13 RBIs in 15 games with the Sounds.

"Obviously, there's a few at-bats where I could have put some better swings on the ball, but overall, I feel I've had some good at-bats," Conrad said. "I hit some balls hard on the last homestand. It's nothing to be worried about. You can't dwell on anything.

"It would be nice to get that first [hit] out of the way."

The 32-year-old had two big chances on Monday. Conrad struck out with a runner at third and nobody out in the second inning and struck out again in the ninth with two runners on base and the Brewers trailing by two.

Conrad started at second base on Monday when Rickie Weeks rested a bruised left hand for the third consecutive game. Weeks was back in the lineup Tuesday night, so Conrad was back on the bench.
