    Matt Harrison took a five-hitter into the ninth inning and helped the Texas Rangers avoid a three-game sweep with a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

    Harrison (4-4) struck out three, walked three and threw 117 pitches in his longest outing of the season, finishing two outs shy of his first shutout since 2009. Harrison fanned Ryan Howard to open the ninth, but was lifted after he walked Ben Francisco.

    The lefty was just the latest pitcher to shut down the slumping Phillies. Neftali Feliz got the final two outs for his ninth save.

    Mitch Moreland had an RBI double off Phillies starter Roy Oswalt and Craig Gentry added a suicide squeeze.

    Both teams are expected to get a lift on Monday: Chase Utley for the Phillies, and Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz for the Rangers.
