Matt Harrison Brilliant, Rangers Shut Out Giants 5-0

Matt Harrison was brilliant on Friday night, as the southpaw starter went the distance, pitching a complete game shutout against the San Francisco Giants as the Rangers cruised to a 5-0 victory.

Harrison's effort was nothing shy of dominant. Though he only struck out four Giants in the contest, Harrison gave up just five hits while issuing no walks. Harrison also recorded 18 ground ball outs in the game.

Ian Kinsler set the tone for the night in his first at bat. Leading off for Texas, Kinsler homered off of San Francisco starter Barry Zito, putting the Rangers up 1-0 -- which was more than enough for Harrison on Friday night.

Offensively, the Rangers pounded out 14 hits against the Giants. Craig Gentry was a perfect 5-5 in the game, with a run scored and two RBI. Josh Hamilton only notched one hit, but he made it count, as he belted his 22nd homer of the season.

The series will resume on Saturday, as Scott Feldman will look to notch his first win of the year against Ryan Vogelsong.
