Harrison sharp in 2nd outing, Texas blanks D-backs
TEXAS 7, ARIZONA 1

By BOB BAUM

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Even though it was just spring
training, Matt Harrison wanted to rebound from a rough opener.



Consider it mission accomplished.



The Texas left-hander, an 18-game winner last season, allowed
three hits in three scoreless innings and the Rangers went on
to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-1 on Saturday.



"Anytime you have a bad game you want to bounce back as quickly
as possible and I was able to do it in my next start," Harrison
said, "so that was a positive note and something I can build on
going into my next start."



In his first spring start last Sunday against Kansas City,
Harrison threw 40 pitches in one inning, allowing four runs on
six hits against Kansas City.



"Come out and start off your first game like that is a little
concerning but I know I can be better than that," he said. "You
know, there were a couple things I needed to fix and got it back
on track. I was able to stay close a lot better today and stay
on top of the ball. The other day I was getting around and
wasn't consistent with my mechanics."



Manager Ron Washington said it was just a normal spring training
progression for a pitcher.



"Today he had his sinker working," Washington said. "The first
outing he didn't really have his sinker. He had a good changeup
today also, and those are the bread and butter pitches. We know
he can spot the fastball but he didn't have his sinker and he
didn't have his changeup. Today he had both of them."



Lefty Wade Miley made his first spring start for Arizona, giving
up three runs on three hits in two innings, including a solo
home run by Craig Gentry. Brandon Allen and Elvis Andrus also
homered for Texas. In addition to his homer, Gentry stole two
bases and scored three times.



Miley, second in rookie of the year balloting after going 16-11
with a 3.33 ERA for Arizona last season, was not overly
concerned with his so-so first start.



Getting back out there and facing hitters again, I was happy
with that," he said. "I felt like the ball was coming out of my
hand good. I wasn't locating the fastball. The breaking stuff
was OK. It was something to build off, definitely."



Nelson Cruz was the only Texas player with more than one hit,
going 2 for 4. He had an RBI single off Miley in the first. Paul
Goldschmidt and Matt Davidson each went 2 for 2 for Arizona.



Randall Delgado, a candidate for Arizona's fifth starting spot,
gave up a run on three hits in two innings, with one walk.
Delgado, who came to the Diamondbacks as part of the trade that
sent Justin Upton to Atlanta, had been rocked for five runs on
six hits in one inning in his first start spring against Kansas
City on Monday. He is battling with left-handers Tyler Skaggs
and Patrick Corbin for the last spot in the rotation.



NOTES: Washington has yet to name an opening-day starter. ... A
sellout crowd of 12,654 watched the game in glorious sunshine at
Salt River Fields, the Diamondbacks' spring home in north
Scottsdale. ... Arizona 2B Aaron Hill was a late scratch with
tightness in his left quad.
