KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The more familiar C.J. Wilson becomes with teams, the more dominant he is.
Wilson gave up just two hits in 7 2-3 innings Monday night to lift the Texas Rangers to a 3-0 victory over the Kansas City Royals and continue an incredible second-half pitching surge. He is 7-0 with a 1.99 earned run average since the All-Star break and has the most wins in the majors during that span.
Wilson (14-5) credits his second-half roll to the familiarity he has gained in facing hitters throughout the year.
"Game experience against the same teams gives me the advantage," Wilson said. "Every team I'm facing now, I've faced before at some point in the season. I've had the chance to prepare even more."
Wilson allowed only a scratch hit to Willie Bloomquist until the eighth inning when Jai Miller delivered a one-out single to center. The left-hander, who had a complete-game win over the Royals in May, struck out six and walked four.
The Bloomquist single was a big bouncer inside first that Mitch Moreland couldn't field cleanly. Asked if he would have had a problem with the scoring decision had that prevented a no-hitter, Wilson was quick to respond.
"Yes," Wilson said. "That was a real hit that Miller got. The other one was kind of like a bad-hop grounder. I was looking at it like that was a no-hitter for me. But I still had to throw another (five) outs to get it and I didn't throw those outs."
Bloomquist gave credit to Wilson for keeping the Royals down the whole night.
"He's just real deceptive," Bloomquist said.
Bloomquist wasn't about to enter a debate against whether Wilson deserved to take a no-hitter into the eighth.
