ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Prince Fielder homered, Matt Harrison earned his first win of the season and the Texas Rangers beat Colorado 5-0 Thursday night after being overwhelmed by the Rockies the previous three games.

Harrison (1-0) and four relievers combined on a five-hitter, the Rangers' major league-best seventh shutout. Joakim Soria worked a perfect ninth with two strikeouts.

Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado extended his hitting streak to 28 games with a single in the third. That broke the team record he matched Wednesday night.

Colorado was the only National League team without a shutout loss. The Rockies, whose 22 wins are tied for most in the majors, had 50 hits and outscored the Rangers 29-5 the previous three nights - the first two in Denver before the interleague matchup switched to Texas.
