C. J. Wilson didn’t last through the seventh inning, but he didn’t allow a run and he gave a lead to one of the more effective bullpens in the game right now. With the 4-0 win, Wilson improved to 13-5 and he gave up four hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 6 2/3 innings. Adams and Feliz pitched a shutout inning a piece to close out the game.
Mike Napoli had the big hit. He belted a three run blast with two outs in the sixth inning. That was his 21st home run of the season. Michael Young had a pair of singles and he scored a run.
The Rangers are hardly safe with a month still left to play but in the same vein, it’s time to start thinking about playoff tickets. Still, I like the Rangers chances and it’ll make these head to head match ups with the Angels that much more fun to watch.
