Wilson's RBI fuels Rangers in 4-3 win over Orioles

Bobby Wilson lined a tie-breaking single with two out in the sixth inning, and Adrian Beltre hit his 13th home run as the Texas Rangers beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-3 on Saturday night.

The Rangers have won three straight and increased their lead for the second AL wild card to 1 1/2 games.

The Orioles have lost 10 of their last 12, dropping 4 1/2 games behind Texas. In each loss, they have scored three runs or fewer.

Wilson snapped a 3-3 tie when he lined Mychal Givens' first pitch over third baseman Manny Machado to score Elvis Andrus, who reached on a two-out triple off the wall in left field.

Rangers left-hander Martin Perez (2-3) allowed three runs on seven hits with no walks in 6 1-3 innings, throwing 63 strikes in his 84 pitches.

Ubaldo Jimenez (9-9) gave up four runs in 5 2-3 innings. His last four starts have resulted in two losses and two no-decisions.
