Rangers manager talks about the Feliz slump

The word slump was thrown out by Rangers manager Ron Washington after another shaky Neftali Feliz outing Sunday. Feliz allowed a leadoff double to open the ninth. That run came around to score, and while it wasn't earned, it continued a bad trend for Feliz.

He threw 14 pitches, only seven of which were strikes. He also had a blown save Friday against Kansas City.

Washington knows his closer is struggling.

“All I want Neffy to do is be Neffy,” Washington said. “There’s nothing wrong with him. I thing is sometimes pitchers go through slumps just like hitters go through slumps. He’s in a slump and we’ve got to keep giving him the ball until that one day he goes out there and everything falls into place and then we can move forward.”
