Texas Rangers Blown Out by Detroit Tigers – Lose Series

The Texas Rangers lost last night to the Detroit Tigers, 8-1.

Matt Harrison started for the Rangers and allowed four runs on eight hits in four innings after not allowing a run in his previous 19 2/3 innings.

Harrison was pitching for the first time in nine days after missing his last start June 2 in Cleveland with a blister on his right index finger. He also developed

a kidney stone and had been in discomfort since last Saturday. He has not passed the stone and there was some concern about whether he would be forced to skip another turn in the rotation.

Texas trimmed the deficit to 4-1 in the sixth, grouping together three hits off Tiger Pitcher Rick Porcello. Ian Kinsler scored from third on Michael Young’s infield single, but Porcello got Adrian Beltre to line out to short and striked out Cruz with two runners aboard to end the threat and deflate the Rangers.

This ends the Rangers streak of winning four consecutive series with the loss; this is also the highest number of hits given up by the Rangers this season with 20.
