Washington Comfortable with Feliz

Saturday October 29th, 2011

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said Friday that he would go to Neftali Feliz to close Game 7, despite the closer's struggles Thursday. Feliz gave up two runs in the bottom of the ninth Thursday that tied the game, including a two-out, two-run triple to David Freese.

Freese later homered to give the Cardinals a 10-9 victory. Game 7 is Friday in St. Louis.
