SAN FRANCISCO, June 9 (UPI) -- Matt Harrison limited San Francisco to five hits and threw the third shutout of his career Friday in bringing the Texas Rangers a 5-0 victory over the Giants.

Harrison (8-3) won his fourth straight start and got home run support from Ian Kinsler and Josh Hamilton.

This is Harrison's fifth major league season and he had not had a shutout in three years. He did not walk a batter and struck out four while throwing 111 pitches.

Texas had lost its previous two games and San Francisco had won two straight.

Kinsler hit a solo homer leading off the first and Josh Hamilton slugged his 22nd of the year in the fifth to give the Rangers a 3-0 lead.

Kinsler singled in a run in the sixth and Craig Gentry had RBI singles in the fourth and ninth among his five hits. Gentry raised his batting average to .341 in 88 at-bats this season.

Barry Zito (5-3) took the loss, giving up four runs on six hits in nine innings.
