Scott Baker gets first win since 2011

ARLINGTON, Texas – It’s been a long time since Texas Rangers reliever Scott Baker tallied his last win. But Baker was all smiles early Wednesday morning after not only getting his first victory of the season in Tuesday's 3-2, 14-inning triumph over the Tampa Bay Rays, but his first win since July 23, 2011 when he was with the Minnesota Twins. Baker, who missed the 2012 season while recovering from Tommy John surgery, also put an end to another rather inauspicious record.
