Wilson allowed three runs on five hits while walking four and striking out five over six innings in a loss to the Mariners on Saturday.

Wilson was able to hang around after allowing three runs in the first two innings to pick up his third consecutive quality start, but his K:BB ratio over that span is a bit troubling, as he has struck out just 14 while walking nine in 18.2 innings. He head into the All-Star break having tallied a 7-7 record 3.83 earned-run average in 18 games.

Wilson allowed three runs on six hits and two walks across six innings Sunday against the Rangers. He struck out four and improved his record to 7-6 on the season.

The lefty was in line for an even better outing but he fizzled in the sixth inning and allowed a pair of runs before finishing out the frame. Wilson has now provided four quality starts in his last five outings and his season ERA now sits at 3.82. He will draw a cushy matchup against light-hitting Seattle in his next start Saturday.

Wilson improved to 6-6 as he allowed one run on five hits and three walks over six innings Monday against the Yankees.

Wilson has now allowed one run or fewer in three of his past four starts. The quality start was Wilson's ninth in 16 outings this year. Over 25 percent of Wilson's earned runs came in a pair of outings to begin the month; starts like Monday's have been closer to the norm for Wilson, who lowered his ERA to 3.78 in the process.

Wilson fell to 5-6 as he took a beating Tuesday from the Astros. He allowed seven runs on eight hits and two walks over just 3.1 innings.

Tuesday marks the first time Wilson hasn't made it through at least five innings this season. Wilson still has 35 strikeouts in just 31.1 innings in June, but he has given up six home runs and is struggling to keep the ball on the ground -- he induced just three ground balls in Tuesday's loss.

Wilson (5-5) shut down the Diamondbacks on Thursday, striking out nine while giving up just one run on eight hits in eight innings.

He didn't walk a batter for the second time in three starts, and that's no mean feat for a guy like Wilson, who's been dogged by control issues throughout his career. And holding the D-Backs -- the National League's most productive offense -- to one run in their hitter-friendly home ballpark is a darn fine accomplishment too. The veteran lefty is in the midst of by far the finest of his four seasons as an Angel, and he's responded to a pair of blowups by posting two consecutive dominant outings. He'll look to make it three when he faces the Astros on Tuesday.

Wilson spun a gem against the A's on Saturday, tossing seven scoreless innings while striking out eight and walking three en route to his fourth victory of the season.

Wilson got back on track in a big way Saturday, with only a high pitch count (106) preventing him from progressing further in the contest. Wilson has been inconsistent on the mound this season, but has struck out 28 batters in his last 26 innings, which could make him an intriguing play going forward.

Wilson allowed six runs on seven hits while striking out eight over seven innings in a loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

Wilson has now struck out at least seven batters in three straight starts, but has allowed 12 earned runs over that span, including a season-high three homers in Monday's loss. It's worth noting that he did not issue a walk in the contest, but while he has shown some positive signs, his inconsistency makes him a tricky play, particularly in hitter-firendly environments. The 34-year-old will take a 3.92 ERA to the mound against the A's on Saturday.

Wilson allowed five runs on four hits while striking out seven and walking three over six innings in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Wilson has struggled with his command of late, walking 11 batters in his last three starts, after allowing just three free passes in his previous three outings. He will look to reestablish the strike zone when he takes a 3.55 ERA into a rematch against the Rays on the road next week.

The Angels supported Wilson with 12 runs, enough to earn him the win. His next outing will be against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Wilson gave up four runs on seven hits over six innings while striking out six and walking three in a losing effort against the Red Sox on Saturday night.

Mike Napoli did most of the damage against him, as the Red Sox first baseman hit both of the home runs that Wilson surrendered. After a two-start week featuring a pair of tough road matchups, Wilson will face another difficult test against the Tigers at home Thursday in his next scheduled start.
