Right-hander Neftali Feliz said that he was upset after blowing a save in Game 6 of the World Series, when the Rangers were one pitch away from their first world title, but he said that he has moved on because he got beat with his best pitch.
He tries not to think too much about the game, but said that he was ready to pitch the 10th after Josh Hamilton gave the Rangers the lead again in the the top half. Darren Oliver got the call, after manager Ron Washington believed Feliz was too fragile mentally, and St. Louis again rallied from a two-run deficit in a game they eventually won 10-9 in 11 innings.
"It was something that really, really upset me, but I wasn't that mad at myself because I threw my pitch," Feliz said. "We talk about it, and I thought about it. Twice we were one strike away from winning it all. But it didn't happen, and we have to move on. With time, you try not to forget but not to think too much about it."
