Harrison, Beltre lead Rangers past A's

Matt Harrison pitched six-hit ball into
the eighth inning, Adrian Beltre homered in his third consecutive
game and the Texas Rangers extended their winning streak to a
season-best seven games with a 2-0 victory over the Oakland
Athletics on Sunday.
Harrison (7-7) struck out seven and walked one in 7 2-3 innings,
and Neftali Feliz completed the shutout by working a perfect ninth
for his 18th save in 22 chances.
After Josh Hamilton drew a two-out walk in the sixth, Beltre
lifted a 1-0 pitch from Trevor Cahill (8-7) into the seats in
left-center for Beltre's 19th of the season.
Beltre and Hamilton are two of five Rangers on the AL All-Star
