The White Sox beat the Rangers Thursday, but Saturday was a different story. Edwin Jackson allowed four runs early in the game and struggled to recover.

Matt Harrison pitched four scoreless innings and the Texas Rangers beat the Chicago White Sox 4-1 on Saturday.

Harrison allowed a pair of singled, struck out four and walked none. The 6-foot-4 left-hander has yielded just one run in nine innings this spring.

Andres Blanco hit a two-run triple in the second inning and Doug Deeds added a two-out, two-run single in the fourth for the defending American League champs.

Edwin Jackson allowed four runs and eight hits in four innings for the White Sox. Adam Dunn doubled and tripled for two of Chicago’s five hits on the day.
