ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — C.J. Wilson threw 6 2-3 scoreless innings for his 13th victory and Mike Napoli hit a three-run homer as the AL West-leading Texas Rangers returned home with a 4-0 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.
Wilson (13-5) struck out four while limiting the Red Sox to four singles.
Napoli’s 21st homer, in the sixth off Erik Bedard (4-9), extended the Rangers’ 1-0 lead and his hitting streak to a season-best 11.
Bedard is 0-2 in his four starts for the Red Sox since being acquired July 31 in a trade from Seattle. The left-hander struck out four and allowed seven hits over six innings.
The Rangers were coming off a 7-3 roadtrip that ended with a 10-0 loss at the Chicago White Sox.
