Rangers Snap White Sox Win Streak
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Texas catcher Matt Treanor had a solo homer and a two-run double for his first extra-base hits of the season and former releiver C.J. Wilson had another solid start for the Rangers in a 4-2 victory over the Chicago White Sox Tuesday night.

Treanor's big game came hours after the Rangers optioned Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Taylor Teagarden, the two catchers on their season-opening roster, to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Wilson (2-1) gave up two runs over six innings, striking out Donny Lucy to end the sixth with the bases loaded after going to a 3-0 count and then having Lucy foul off three full-count pitches before finally swinging and missing.

Dustin Nippert worked two scoreless innings before Frank Francisco had a perfect ninth for his first save in three chances. The win by Texas snapped Chicago's three-game winning streak.
