Wilson makes amends in Rangers' win

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Texas Rangers infielder Josh Wilson gave the Oakland Athletics a pair of unearned runs when he booted a routine ground ball at third base in the fourth inning.

With two outs and the Rangers trailing 4-3 in the top of the ninth, Wilson crushed an RBI double to left off A's right-hander Luke Gregerson, bringing Leonys Martin home with the tying run from second.
