When the Texas Rangers signed closer Joe Nathan this off-season, general manager Jon Daniels viewed it as a two-player acquistion. With Nathan as the closer, Neftali Feliz would move into the starting rotation.

The moves paid off Tuesday night. Feliz threw seven scoreless innings in his starting debut, and Nathan got the save in a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners at Rangers Ballpark.

It was save No. 2 for Nathan in a Rangers uniform, and he gives credit to Feliz for being in that situation.
