Schenectady’s Casper Wells With Big Weekend As Mariners Take 2 of 3 From Red Sox
It was quite a weekend for Schenectady’s Casper Wells.
The Seattle outfielder homered two straight days as the Mariners took two of three from the Boston Red Sox over the weekend.
In Seattle’s 5-4 win on Saturday, Wells went 2 for 4 with a homerun (off of Josh Beckett) and 2 RBIs.
He then followed it up on Sunday with another homer as Seattle denied Tim Wakefield his 200th career victory with a 5-3 victory over visiting Boston.
Sunday’s homer by Wells gave the Mariners a 5-1 lead with a leadoff blast in the sixth. He went 1 for 3 with a stolen base in the victory.
The Schenectady native was traded by Detroit to Seattle on July 30th and is hitting .327 with 3 homeruns and 9 RBIs in 10 games with his new club.
For the season, Wells is batting .275 with 7 homers and 21 RBIs.
