C.J. Wilson Has Another Bad Start as the Texas Rangers Fall to the Toronto Blue Jays

C.J. Wilson has now had back-to-back losses, after putting the Rangers in an insurmountable hole. The Rangers fell 7-3 to the Blue Jays.

Although the Rangers may now have one of the best bullpens in the AL, that newly stocked bullpen didn’t have much of a chance to shine. Wilson gave up 7 runs, 5 earned on 7 hits in just 3 2/3rd innings. The follows up his last start where he was fortunate to earn a no-decision. In his no-decision against the Twins, Wilson let 6 runs score, 5 of those were earned, in 4 innings.

Blue Jays pitcher Brandon Morrow had the opposite performance of his Ranger counterpart. Morrow threw a career best 11 strikeouts in his 7 innings of work.

On the bright side, newly acquired Rangers setup man Koji Uehara performed well in his first appearance as a Ranger. Uehara pitched a scoreless 7th inning which included 2 strikeouts. Uehara has now thrown 16 scoreless innings over his past 14 games.

After getting down 7-0 early on, the Rangers finally broke through the shutout in the 6th. Michael Young broke through with a double to score Josh Hamilton. Mike Napoli immediately followed up Young’s RBI with an RBI single to score Young and make it a 7-2 Toronto game heading into the 7th.

In the 8th, Napoli brought in another run. This time a RBI double to score Hamilton.

The Rangers have now lost their 4th game in 6 tries. The Rangers hold a 2 game lead over the Angels.
