He combined to hold Texas to five runs in 18 innings with 12 strikeouts and two walks in those two outings.
PHILLIES vs. WILSON: Wilson's only experience against the Phillies came in 2008 as a reliever. He allowed one run in two innings with three strikeouts and no walks. The 30-year-old Wilson moved into the Rangers rotation last season and was a revelation, going 15-8 with a 3.35 ERA in 204 innings. This year, he is off to another strong start.
