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 on 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.
