Texas Rangers’ starting pitcher C.J. Wilson gave up just two hits in 7 2/3 innings Monday night to help the Texas Rangers to a 3-0 win over the Royals. The Texas starter 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.
The Royals ended up with just three hits on the night and ruined what was a pretty good night for their starter Kyle Davies. Kyle Davies (6-9) went 8.1 innings, allowing three runs, two earned on ten hits with six strikeouts and a walk.
In the second, the Rangers got a leadoff double by Nelson Cruz, who later scored when Yadi’s older brother Bengie Molina hit a single.
Texas added to its lead in the fifth on a triple by former Royals player Andres Blanco, who went 3 for 4. Elvis Andrus drove him in with a single and Michael Young delivered a sacrifice fly in the ninth.
