Dempster Goes 6 Innings In 6-2 Loss To Texas

MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Neftali Feliz pitched three scoreless innings, then left with shoulder stiffness Tuesday during the Texas Rangers’ 6-2 victory over a Chicago Cubs’ split squad.

The right-hander, being switched from the bullpen to the rotation, was making his third start. He allowed two hits, struck out two and walked one.

Feliz will be re-evaluated Wednesday.

Ryan Dempster gave up two runs and four hits in six innings, the longest outing for the Cubs pitcher this year. He allowed Dustin Brown’s two-run homer in the second.

Engel Beltre walked with the bases loaded in the eighth and Conor Jackson had an RBI single.
