It was a scary moment for Seattle Mariners outfielder Casper Wells on Wednesday night.

The Schenectady native got hit in the face by a pitch from Brandon Morrow in the Mariners’ 5-1 home loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.

Wells was hit in the nose with fastball from Blue Jays starter Brandon Morrow and left the game in the 6th inning.  Wells, who struck out twice before being hit, saw his streak of homers in 4 straight games come to an end.

The Schenectady native took a glancing blow off the tip of his nose as he tried to back away from Morrow’s high-and-tight pitch. He went down momentarily before being helped off the field by trainers with a towel on his nose.

The Mariners said that X-rays on his nose showed no broken bones. There was no immediate word on when Wells might be ready to play again.

Wells was acquired by the Mariners in a trade with the Tigers on July 30th.  He’s hitting .326 in 13 games since joining the Mariners with 5 home runs and 12 RBIs.
