Schenectady’s Casper Wells Homers For 4th Straight Game In Mariners Loss to Toronto
Seattle Mariners outfielder Casper Wells is on a roll right now. The Schenectady native has now homered in 4 straight games.
The latest coming during last night’s 13-7 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays.
Wells blasted a two-run shot off Brad Mills in the second inning. His 4th HR in 4 games tied Danny Tartabull for the Mariners’ rookie record set back in 1986. Wells went 1 for 4 last night and is now batting .280 on the season.
Wells has been starting in the outfield on a regular basis since he was traded from Detroit to Seattle on July 30th. The Schenectady High School graduate has hit safely in all but two of the 11 games he has appeared in as Mariner. The 26-year-old is batting .358 over that stretch to go along with five home runs and 10 RBI.
