|Wilson Pitches Rangers Past White Sox
|ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- C.J. Wilson pitched into the seventh inning, Ian Kinsler's RBI single produced the eventual winning run, and the Texas Rangers hung on to beat the Chicago White Sox 2-1 Wednesday.
Wilson (5-3) gave up one run and five hits in 6 1-3 innings to help the Rangers win for the third time in four games. The left-hander struck out five.
Neftali Feliz issued consecutive one-out walks in the ninth, but got A.J. Pierzynski to fly out with runners on first and third for his 10th save in 12 chances as Texas took the deciding game of the three-game series.
Wilson gave up a single to Juan Pierre leading off the game, then recorded the next 16 outs before Gordon Beckham's one-out single in the sixth.
Brent Morel, the next batter, bounced into a double play.
