Geremi Gonzalez Dies from Lightning Strike

Former Brewers relief pitcher Geremi Gonzalez was killed by a lighting strike while on a beach in his native Venezula on Sunday. Gonzalez, who made his big league debut in 1997 with the Cubs, was 33.

Gonzalez's stint with the Brewers was a short one in the second half of the 2006 season. In addition to Milwaukee and Chicago, he also pitched for Tampa Bay, Boston, New York Mets, Toronto, and the Yomiuri Giants of Japan.

The right-hander appeared in 131 games with 83 starts, compiling a 30-35 record.
