C.J. Wilson loses shutout, lead in 6th
Michael Young hasn't had any luck tonight, and C.J. Wilson's ran out in the bottom of the sixth inning.
In his third at-bat, Young grounded weakly to second in the fifth inning. That was his best showing after striking out his first two times against Marlins starter Josh Johnson. Young remains one hit behind Ivan Rodriguez for the most in franchise history.
Wilson had a one-hitter through 5 1/3 innings as the Rangers nursed a 1-0 lead. But after walking his fifth batter, Wilson gave up a two-run homer to Hanley Ramirez. He got out of the inning, but not before he issued another walk and saw his pitch count hit 111.
That's two runs on two hits and six walks with six strikeouts in six innings for Wilson, who was pinch-hit for in the seventh.
