Feliz OK in Cards debut but squad folds

Newly acquired third baseman Pedro Feliz did pretty well for the Redbirds in his debut Friday night, although the team fell to the Giants, 6-3.

Feliz failed to make one difficult play but came through on a different defensive play that seemed quite challenging. He also did well on routine defense and appeared to play comfortably at the hot corner.

Meanwhile, manager Tony LaRussa spoke confidently of Feliz's ability with the bat, which was one of the big question marks in the minds of Cardinal Nation. Feliz went 2-for-4, scoring two of the three Cardinals runs.

The Cardinals attempt to even up the home series versus the Giants Saturday evening and halt the losing streak which finds them descending in the NL Central behind the division-leading Reds.
