Wells, a former Schenectady High School and Towson State (Md.) standout who was traded to the Seattle Mariners by Detroit three weeks ago, was hit in the nose by an up-and-in pitch from Morrow. Wells was dazed and bloodied and left the game.

"Casper, sorry about the pitch that got away tonight. I’m glad it didn’t get you too bad. Enjoy Seattle, it’s a great city," tweeted Morrow, a former Seattle pitcher.

"No worries man. Just grazed the schnaz a little bit, nothing serious. And Seattle is amazing," tweeted Wells.

The pitch also ended Wells' chance to set a new Seattle team record for the most consecutive games with a home run. He had hit a home run in his previous four games to tie a team record.
