Matt Harrison looks to become the AL's second 13-game winner
Haren will face the Rangers for the second time this season after throwing five innings of two-run ball in a 7-3 home loss June 3, his third straight losing start against Texas.
Haren is coming off his first stint on the disabled list
Let's get this thing started. Kinsler, Andrus and Hamilton due up for the Rangers.
Haren posted an 8.67 ERA in his last five starts before going on the DL for the first time in his 10-year career.
Haren tosses a strike right over the heart to start.
Haren misses with a change low and inside, count 1-2
Kinsler is hitting .274 on the year with 11 HR's
Kinsler hits a chopper back up the middle that is handled easily by Kendrick and tossed onto first for the out.
Elvis Andrus is next up for the Rangers. He is batting .292 on the year with just 2 HR's
Haren misses pretty bad in the dirt with a split pitch, count 1-2
Haren misses high and inside to Elvis and tags him on the left elbow. He takes first.
That will bring up Josh Hamilton. He is batting .298 with 28 HR's on the year.
Haren better check on Elvis Andrus at first. He has only been caught 6 times this season.
Hamilton is way in front of a offspeed pitch and fall behind Haren 0-2
With a run tonight, Trout would set the Angels record and the AL rookie mark by scoring in 14 consecutive games.
Hamilton hits a ball towards third base, a weakly hit grounder that will move Elvis over BUT Hamilton is tossed out at first.
Beltre is next up for the Rangers with a runner in scoring position and 2 out.
