Cowboys coach undecided on using starters Thursday

IRVING  (AP) — Wade Phillips has watched the tape and wonders what all the fuss is about.


Royals flushed by the Rangers

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.

ARLINGTON  (AP) — Gio Gonzalez provided quite a follow-up to Dallas Braden, going to a near extreme to copy his Oakland teammate while pitching the Athletics to a series-clinching victory over AL West-leading Texas.


Homers, Wilson too much for Twins

User Rating: / 5

ARLINGTON (AP) — Vladimir Guerrero hit a tiebreaking homer and a patchwork bullpen made that hold up over the last three innings, giving the Texas Rangers a 4-3 victory over Minnesota as C.J. Wilson won his sixth consecutive decision.

"Just the wolfpack, they came in there and just everybody took a bite, it was pretty cool," Wilson said of the five relievers that finished the game. "Every single guy stepped up. It was awesome."
