Washington Tabs Harrison as Game 7 Starter

Wednesday October 26th, 2011

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said Tuesday that Matt Harrison will start Game 7, according to the team's official site. Harrison threw bullpen pitches on the side during Game 5.

"That was a between-start thing," Washington said, before confirming that Harrison would start Game 7 even if it were postponed by rain. If there were to be a rain delay, Derek Holland would be on his normal for days rest, but Washington said that wouldn't matter.
