ARLINGTON -- Mariners shortstop Jack Wilson was originally in
Wednesday's starting lineup against the Rangers but was scratched about two

"He struggled to get through the game yesterday, was able to make it
through, and then really felt wiped out today," Wedge said.
Tuesday's game-time temperature, 105, tied the
Mariners' record for hottest starting temperature, and Tuesday's local high, 107, broke a 69-year-old record.
"I'm sure that has something to do with [Wilson's fatigue]," Wedge said.
Wilson went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and a walk in
Tuesday's 7-6 loss to Texas.
