Rangers lose game, solo possession of first place

Three two-out hits led to a three-run fourth inning for Arizona, and Matt Harrison had his shortest out of the season as the Rangers lost their fifth straight game 8-2. Couple that with a 4-3 Los Angeles victory over Colorado, and the Rangers and Angels are tied for first place in the American League West. The Rangers had held solo possesion of first place for 48 consecutive days.

Harrison took the blame for the loss. He lasted only 3 2/3 innings and was chased from the game when Stephen Drew drove in a run with a single. Harrison struggled with his control, walking four and falling behind often.

The Rangers managed eight hits, which is relatively good compared to three hits in each of their previous two games. Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Michael Young had two hits apiece.
