PHONEIX -- Cameron Wright caught one homer at the Arizona Diamondbacks game and immediately threw it back. No way was he giving up the second one. Not on his mother's 50th birthday.

Sitting in the left-center seats at Chase Field on Saturday night, Wright caught a two-run home run by the Los Angeles Dodgers' Yasiel Puig in the third inning and came up with a solo shot by Arizona's Chris Owings in the fifth.

Wright, of Scottsdale, caught Puig's homer on the fly and threw it back onto the field immediately.

"When we sat here I knew this was a pretty good area for a home run to come," Wright said. "I told myself that if a Dodger hits it, especially Puig, that I was immediately going to throw it back. When it was coming in the air I was ready for it. No hesitation and went for it."

There was no hesitation when he came up with Owings' homer, either.

That one came on a carom and Wright gave his fiance a little nudge so he get it.

"It was a few seats down for me and I was trying to get in front of my fiancé to make sure she wouldn't get hit and kind of elbowed her in the process," he said. "It went off the railing and stopped right in front of me feet, so I picked it up and gave it to mom."
