Angels Vs. Rangers, Game Preview: C.J. Wilson, Derek Holland Sqaure Off

The Los Angeles Angels took care of business on Tuesday against the Texas Rangers, and are hoping for a repeat performance on Wednesday with former Ranger C.J. Wilson taking the mound for L.A.

Wilson (12-9, 3.73 ERA) took a no decision in his last start against the Royals after allowing four runs in five innings of work on Friday. The Angels have won Wilson's last five starts despite him owning a 5.67 ERA over his last six outings.

Texas will counter with Derek Holland (10-6, 4.50) who is 3-0 with a 2.83 ERA over his last five starts. He has lost his last two outings against the Angels though, and is 1-3 with a 7.04 ERA in his last five starts at Angels Stadium.

L.A. is three games back in the AL Wild Card and 6.5 back on Texas in the AL West, but are 8-6 against the Rangers this season while outscoring them 44-18 in their last five meetings.

First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. PT with coverage on ESPN, Fox Sports West and KLAA 830 AM.
