C.J. Wilson ran more than a mile before his Tuesday start, produced five shutout innings with five strikeouts and no walks, then ran again in the outfield for about 15 minutes.

"I'm looking forward to building up to nine [innings]," Wilson said afterward. "I'm trying to simulate pitching on a hot day in Texas."

Wilson's control, ability to get ahead of hitters in the count and sharp changeup have him "where he should be," Angels Manager Mike Scioscia said.

"I had good rhythm," Wilson said. "Each time, I have a goal, and I'm accomplishing those goals every time."
