MLB: Texas 2, Los Angeles Angels 1

ANAHEIM, Calif., Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Rich Harden allowed one run in seven innings and Vladimir Guerrero homered Saturday in the Texas Rangers' 2-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels.

Harden (4-3) returned from the disabled list to scatter five hits and two walks to notch his first win since June 1. He recorded three strikeouts.

Harden had been suffering from a strained gluteus muscle.

Frank Francisco twirled a scoreless eighth and Neftali Feliz collected his 29th save with a 1-2-3 ninth as the Rangers evened their three-game series with the Angels at one win apiece.

Guerrero delivered a two-run homer in the fourth, providing all the offense for the first-place Rangers.

Newly acquired Dan Haren (7-10) pitched well in his second start since coming to the Angels in a trade from Arizona, showing few effects of being hit in the forearm by a line drive in his previous outing.

Haren tossed a complete game, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six.
