Matt Harrison was on the mound for the Rangers and was having a great game of his own. Harrison went 7 innings giving up 1 earned run and keeping the Rangers in the game until a line drive struck him in his pitching arm causing him to leave the game. Reliever Mark Lowe struggled when he came in giving up 4 earned runs in the bottom of the 7th only going 2/3rds of an inning.

Yorvit Torrealba ruined the shut out for the Twins hitting a deep single to center to score Adrian Beltre. Torrealba and Beltre were the only 2 hits for the Rangers.

The Rangers have the day off before heading up to New York to start a 3 game series against the Yankees Tuesday night.
