C.J. Wilson to start Saturday's game
Less than 12 hours after the end of Friday's 10-3 game, Wilson will climb on the mound to start for the second consecutive day. Mother Nature ended his Friday start after he recorded just one out and loaded the bases. When the rains stopped and the nearly two-hour delay was over, Jerome Williams couldn't hold the Rangers' bats down and Wilson got the loss.
His line: one-third of an inning, three hits (all infield singles), four runs (all earned), a walk and a strikeout.
Yu Darvish earned the victory Friday. Now Matt Harrison will get the opportunity to oppose Wilson at 12:05 p.m. Saturday on Fox and ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM.
Fans greeted Wilson with boos Friday, and another sellout crowd will have that chance Saturday. It should be interesting to see how Wilson responds after Friday's short outing.
