Redemption song for Rangers as goats become heroes in 5-4 win over Oakland

Having lost two leads earlier in the game, lost two players to injuries and seemingly lost the tying run on a blown squeeze bunt, the Rangers still managed to score twice after they were down to their last strike on Tuesday to steal a 5-4 win from AL West rival Oakland. No. 9 hitter Josh Wilson, whose error earlier in the game had helped Oakland take the lead, drove home the tying...

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Michael Choice singled in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning and the Texas Rangers rallied to beat the Oakland Athletics 5-4 on Tuesday night.

Late push gives Rangers fourth walk-off win

After the 15-game mark of the 2014 season, it’s apparent that the Texas Rangers are challenged at the plate. Sure, there’s 90 percent of the season left to be played. Slumping hitters are going to get hot. Injured players are going to return. But a team that currently needs contributions from Josh Wilson, Robinson Chirinos and Kevin Kouzmanoff, among others, to be successful...

Lower half of Rangers lineup proves productive in opener

ARLINGTON, Texas - Despite making two big-name additions to the top of the lineup, it was the bottom of the lineup that did much of the damage for the Rangers on Opening Day. The 10 runs the Rangers scored Monday weren't enough to beat the Phillies, who won by the football score of 14-10. But it did put at ease the concerns about the bottom half of the Rangers' lineup, at...

Rangers' disastrous spring training close to concluding

The most disastrous Rangers spring training of the past decade is just days from ending. After the latest news on Yu Darvish was announced Tuesday, I suggested the organization go ahead and call it a spring. It's hard to look at this current roster and envision any scenario where the Rangers surpass the Oakland A's this season. And give this thing another week and I might...

D-backs call up pitcher Spruill, designate Wilson

The Diamondbacks called up pitcher Zeke Spruill from Triple-A Reno on Monday and designed infielder Josh Wilson for assignment to make room on the roster. The team said Spruill was needed to provide bullpen depth because Josh Collmenter, who's been reliable in a long-relief role, threw six innings on Tuesday and would need some rest. Collmenter's long outing was due to starter...

Gerardo Parra tripled and scored twice, and Josh Wilson had a run-scoring double to help lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Sunday.

Former Tribe Player Comes Back To Haunt Indians

Gwinnett Braves  8,  Indianapolis Indians  5 (Box)   Chase d’Arnaud tripled and scored in the 1st inning.   Braves’ SS Josh Wilson was an Indianapolis Indian back in 2008, when he appeared in 97 games for the Tribe before being traded away to the Red Sox organization.  Since that season, Wilson has been playing in the Pacific Coast League, so this series between the Indians...

Braves' second half off to a strange start

ATLANTA -- Maybe it was a Friday the 13th thing. Or perhaps it was the bizarre power outage that darkened the field and brought play to a halt for 16 minutes in the top of the second inning. But whatever it was, the second half of the season got off to a strange and uneasy start for the Atlanta Braves, even though they beat the Mets 7-5 on Friday night. The win had a kiss-your...
