Right-hander Neftali Feliz retired the first 10 batters he faced Sunday and extended his string of shutout innings to 11 before allowing a two-run homer to Clete Thomas in the fifth. Feliz allowed the homer on a high change-up. Thomas had also hit a ball to the wall in right center on another high change-up. Feliz started the sixth, but gave up a triple to Denard Span , a run-scoring single to Jamey Carroll and walked Joe Mauer. "I've got to keep low. That change-up got away from me and he got hold of it," Feliz said, referring to Thomas' home run. "I'm going to keep throwing it; I just have to get it done in the strike zone. It's a good pitch for me."
