Rangers Vs. Mariners Final Score: Matt Harrison Shuts Out Seattle 4-0

The Texas Rangers bounced back from Saturday's shutout loss to the Seattle Mariners with a 4-0 shutout of their own. The Rangers were stymied by Felix Hernandez on Saturday but Matt Harrison returned the favor in Sunday's series finale.

Harrison got all the offense he would need in the first inning when Josh Hamilton drove home the game's first run with an RBI groundout. Adrian Beltre extended the lead in third with a two-run single and Ian Kinsler hit his 10th home run of the season in the fifth.

That was plenty for Harrison who allowed five hits while pitching around four walks in the complete game victory. Hisashi Iwakuma takes the loss allowing seven hits and all four runs in five innings of work.

Beltre had three hits for the Rangers and Craig Gentry added two. Michael Saunders finished with two hits for the Mariners.
