ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Angels starter C.J. Wilson is first major league pitcher in 11 seasons to start consecutive games.

Wilson started on Saturday in the second game of the series at Texas.

In the series opener Friday night, Wilson threw only 22 pitches to five batters before a 1 hour, 56-minute rain delay in the first inning. The left-hander didn't return after the rain stopped.

The last major leaguer to start consecutive games was Aaron Myette for Texas on Sept. 3 and 4, 2002. Myette was ejected from the first game after only two pitches.

Wilson was the loser in the Angels' 10-3 loss Friday night after he allowed four runs. He struck out one before giving up three infield singles and a walk.
