After throwing 22 pitches before a rain delay halted his start Friday, Wilson will get the ball again Saturday against his former team, the Rangers.
Wilson was charged with four runs in one-third of an inning and the loss after coming out tonight. Just one of those runs scored before he was replaced by Jerome Williams.
Williams, who was supposed to start Saturday, went on to pitch 6 2/3 innings and give up six runs out of the pen. Texas won the game 10-3 to improve to 22-11 on the season, while the Angels fell to 14-19.
The Rangers will counter Wilson with Matt Harrison on Saturday.
Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News points out that Wilson will be the first pitcher to start back-to-back games since Aaron Myette did so under similar circumstances for the Rangers in 2002. Myette faced just one batter in his start on Sept. 3 and then came out after gave up five runs in three innings in a loss to Baltimore a day later.
