Brooks Kieschnick, 30, is trying to make the Brewers as an outfielder and a pitcher. How's he doing? SI's Kieschometer tells all.
Sign him up! In a 12-8 extra-inning loss to Texas last Thursday, he played three innings in left, seven at first, drew three walks and hit a three-run homer. "It was good to get into the flow of the game," he said. On Saturday against the Rangers, he entered as a pinch hitter in the fifth and grounded out, pitched the sixth (an unearned run), then drove in two runs with a single. He got his first win (his ERA: 2.00) and is hitting .375.
