Matt Harrison put the finishing touches on a very nice spring on Tuesday night in Arlington, holding the Mexico City Red Devils the two runs (one earned) on three hits, while striking out five and walking none. He came into that game with a 1.69 ERA in four Cactus League starts, and left happy with where he is as the season rapidly approaches.
“I was glad to finish on a good note before the season starts," Harrison said, per the team's official website. "I had a little trouble in the first inning finding my command. After that, I was able to settle in and get some quick outs. I'm very happy with the way it's going.”
Texas defeated Mexico City 13-4, and Harrison’s performance was certainly a promising one for Rangers’ fans--and his wasn’t the only one. Joe Nathan went 1.2 innings, striking out three and giving up one unearned. 22-year-old lefty Robbie Ross looked strong once again, allowing a base hit in the sixth before retiring the next four Red Devils hitters he faced.
