Angels-Athletics Preview

(AP) -- As Jon Lester moves on from his first loss with Oakland, C.J. Wilson hopes his 2013 success against the Athletics carries over to this season.

Trying to win a fifth straight start against the A's, Wilson looks to help the Los Angeles Angels maintain sole possession of first place in AL West by avoiding a fifth consecutive loss at Oakland on Saturday night.

Wilson (10-8, 4.59 ERA) allowed four runs in six innings while not factoring in the decision of a 9-5 home defeat in his first start versus Oakland last season, then went 4-0 with a 1.88 ERA while making three of those starts at the Coliseum.
