Kruse scored in the 13th minute for VfL Bochum in their home clash with Heidenheim overnight, following on from his winner against Darmstadt last weekend.
Unfortunately, Heidenheim equalised shortly afterwards and found a winner in the 73rd minute, but Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou will be noticing Kruse's impressive form ahead of their upcoming World Cup playoff against Syria.
Bochum sit 12th in Germany's second division after six matches.
It was a second straight draw for Leckie's side, who are 11th after four games in the Bundesliga.
Striker Jamie Maclaren got some game time in Darmstadt's 4-3 home win over Arminia Bielefeld in Bundesliga 2.
Maclaren was introduced in the 88th minute of his side's victory, which sees them move to second place on the table.
