Area sports: Seager moves up to Triple A

From staff reports
Former Northwest Cabarrus, Kannapolis American Legion and UNC standout Kyle Seager has been promoted to Triple A.
The Jackson Generals announced that Seager, who played in the Southern League All-Star Game earlier this week, has been promoted to the Seattle Marinersí Triple A affiliate in Tacoma, Wash.
Seager made his Pacific Coast League debut late Thursday night with two hits.
Seager is primarly a second baseman, and that spot opened in Tacoma with the recent promotion of Seagerís former UNC teammate Dustin Ackley, the second pick in the 2009 draft, to Seattle.
Seager, 23, was leading Jackson with a .312 batting average and in doubles with 25 and RBIs with 37. Seager also had a team-best .381 on-base percentage.
With Ackley in front of him, Seager is a likely candidate to be traded, but heís also a potential third baseman for Seattle.

n Wade Moore (West Rowan, Catawba) scored twice as Hagerstown beat Greensboro 6-3 in the South Atlantic League.
