Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison scratched because of inflamed toe

Texas starter Matt Harrison was scratched because of an inflamed toe on his left foot, missing a Rangers' split squad's 5-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Saturday.

Neil Ramirez and Tanner Scheppers both pitched scoreless innings, starting a nine-pitcher six-hitter.

Texas first baseman Mitch Moreland sat out with a tight right quadriceps and is day to day.

Jim Adduci and Brandon Allen hit two-run homers for the Rangers, and Jeff Baker had three hits and an RBI.

Kyle Blanks had a two-run homer for the Padres and is hitting .393 (11 for 28).

San Diego starter Eric Stults allowed three runs — two earned — and five hits in three innings, giving up Allen's homer.
