ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Matt Harrison pitched six scoreless innings while Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre and David Murphy homered for the Texas Rangers, who wrapped up their season-opening series with a 5-0 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday night.Hamilton's first homer of the season was a 441-foot blast that landed in the second deck of seats high above the Rangers bullpen in right-center field. That was leading off the sixth against Gavin Floyd (0-1), putting Texas up 4-0 right after Harrison threw his last pitch.Harrison (1-0) worked out of a jam in the top of the sixth when A.J. Pierzynski struck out with two runners on base.
