G22: Harrison shuts out Dodgers, 4-0

Matt Harrison had a great start here, leading the Rangers to a 4-0 win over the Dodgers.  He went five innings, allowed just a single hit.  No walks.  Struck out three.   Only 57 pitches over five innings – he looked middle of the season strong.  Would have liked to have seen how much more he could have done, but it is just March 16th.   That’s good for me, as I have him on all four of my Fantasy baseball teams.  :)

Overall, Rangers pitchers had a combined awesome game.  9 innings pitched, just two hits, ZERO walks, and eight strikeouts.  Bloody awesome pitching job in this game.  The kind of thing that I’d love to see going into the season – hope this kind of outing happens more.

David Murphy led the offense with a single and a double.   Beyond that, it was a scatted pile of singles amongst everyone else.    Murph had one of the RBI’s, as did Jeff Baker, Jim Adducci, and Greg Miclat.
