Wilson sits with 'physical exhaustion'

ARLINGTON -- Mariners shortstop Jack Wilson was originally in Wednesday's starting lineup against the Rangers but was scratched about two hours before game time with what manager Eric Wedge called "physical exhaustion."

"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.
