Moreland's Homer Helps Rangers Beat Indians

Former closer Neftali Feliz pitched five innings and Mitch Moreland hit a two-run homer to help the Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians 7-4 Saturday night.

Michael Brantley and Jason Kipnis hit solo homers for Cleveland, which has averaged 2.8 runs during a 10-game Cactus League losing streak.

Feliz, now Texas' No. 5 starter, allowed three runs and five hits in his first "A" game start since leaving a March 20 outing with right shoulder soreness.

Texas was without center fielder Josh Hamilton. He left Friday's game with a tight left groin and is day-to-day.

Cleveland starter Justin Masterson gave up seven hits and six runs over 3 2-3 innings in his final tuneup for his first opening-day start Thursday.
