Rangers Look To Salvage Series Against Twins

The Texas Rangers have lost two of their first three games in a four game set against the Minnesota Twins. On Sunday, Matt Harrison and the Rangers will look to salvage a split in Minnesota.

Harrison received his first loss since May 6 in his latest start. Harrison lasted just four innings against the Tigers, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks. The runs were the first Harrison had given up since May 17 against the White Sox, as Harrison hadn't allowed a run to score against either the Phillies or Royals prior to getting shellacked by the Tigers.

Francisco Liriano will make the start for Minnesota. Liriano has been awful on the whole this season, going 3-6 with a 5.20 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. Liriano's control has been absent as well, walking 35 in 53.2 innings of work this year. Liriano has been great at times, though, as he's got a no hitter to his credit this year.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. CDT.
