ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Seattle Mariners second baseman Jack Wilson is out of the game at Texas after falling down hard when trying to turn a double play.

There was no immediate announcement from Seattle on why Wilson was replaced in the field by Luis Rodriguez in the bottom of the third Wednesday, an inning after he had errors on consecutive plays that led to three Texas runs.

Wilson threw wide of first base when Ian Kinsler slid hard into second base, knocking the down veteran infielder.

Before that, Wilson dropped a throw from third baseman Chone Figgins on another potential inning-ending double play.

Known for making stellar plays at shortstop, Wilson had only played that position during 10 years in the majors until being shifted to second base this season.
