Scott Feldman turned in his best outing of the season, and his longest outing since 2010. He allowed one run over seven inning, leading the Rangers to a 9-1 victory over the Red Sox.
It came at the right time, too, as the Rangers announced earlier in the day that starter Colby Lewis' season was over because of an elbow injury that will require surgery.
Asked if Feldman would be a candidate to replace Lewis after his strong start, manager Ron Washington said: "We're looking at a lot of guys for that spot. What Feldman did tonight certainly gives him the opportunity, but we're not going to anoint anyone right now. Just going to keep playing ball and see what happens."
Here are a few other postgame notes:
* Neftali Feliz will make his third medical rehabilitation start on Tuesday for Triple A Round Rock. He is scheduled to throw approximately 60 pitches.
* Mike Napoli seems to be getting it back together at the plate. He belted a two-run home run in the sixth inning, his 15th homer of the season and his third in the last three games. It had been more than a month since Napoli homered at home (June 22 against Colorado).
* Ian Kinsler went 3 for 4 and scored two runs. Josh Hamilton had a pair of RBIs, and pushed his season total to 80.
* The Rangers moved past the 2-million mark in attendance tonight by drawing 44,132.
