MINNEAPOLIS, April 13 (UPI) --
Matt Harrison continued a strong showing by the Texas starting corps Friday by working eight innings in the Rangers' 4-1 victory over Minnesota.
Harrison (2-0) scattered seven hits while throwing 111 pitches. He struck out four and walked two.
No Texas starter has lost a game this season. The only two setbacks suffered by the Rangers have been charged to closer Joe Nathan.
Texas overcame an early 1-0 deficit with a three-run fourth, during which the first four batters reached base.
Adrian Beltre and Michael Young had RBI singles in the inning and David Murphy drove in the third run with a sacrifice fly. Ian Kinsler added his fourth homer of the year in the seventh.
Anthony Swarzak (0-2) took the loss, allowing four runs on nine hits over seven innings. Minnesota was coming off its first two wins of the season, both against the Los Angeles Angels.
