Helms steals second
Wes Helms stole second base in the third inning on Wednesday.
This is headline material for the simple fact that it was the third MLB steal of the 33-year-old’s career. It also was his first steal since April 12, 2002 when he was with the Braves. He swiped it that day, ironically, against the Marlins.
Helms has never stolen as many as two bases in a season. In 2001 and 2002, he had one stolen base in each season, respectively.
Helms swiped second with Burke Badenhop attempting a bunt. He actually slid in safely after Badenhop struck out looking with the count full against Brett Myers.
