Feliz picks up first back-to-back saves

Feliz picks up first back-to-back saves

|
OAKLAND -- Neftali Feliz passed a test on Monday when he closed out the Rangers' 4-2 victory for his sixth save of the season. Feliz also saved Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Mariners, and this marked the first time he saved back-to-back games as a closer.

Throwing eight pitches on Sunday made it conducive for Feliz to pitch back-to-back games. Pitch counts will go far in determining how often the Rangers will use Feliz. Manager Ron Washington called Monday's appearance a "convenient" situation.

"It worked out that he was able to pitch back-to-back games," Washington said. "We'll just wait and see how it plays out. He's a young kid, who is just learning how to do this. He's a kid still learning about himself."
