 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -The Texas Rangers recalled lefty John Koronka from Triple-A Oklahoma and sent down Mike Wood on Wednesday, a day after the right-hander helped snap a six-game losing streak.
Koronka started Wednesday's series finale at Oakland and took the loss in the Rangers' 6-1 defeat. The only left-hander to start for the Rangers this season, Koronka allowed three runs in five innings in his other start May 19 at Houston.
Wood, who was called up from Oklahoma on Monday, pitched five scoreless innings in Tuesday's 4-0 victory against the Athletics. It was his second strong outing in four starts for the Rangers.
Wood is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA in five appearances for Texas and 3-1 with a 2.58 ERA in six games for Oklahoma.
