Blue Jays knock out Feldman, open lead

Jose Bautista's two-run, two-out double in the fifth inning knocked Rangers starter Scott Feldman.

Feldman intentionally walked the next batter before being removed. He allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out four and gave up two home runs to the baseball's long-ball kings.

Reliever Michael Kirkman got out of the fifth inning unscathed but gave up DeWayne Wise's run-scoring double in the sixth. It was the first run allowed by Kirkman after 9 2/3 scoreless innings to start his major league career.

The Blue Jays led, 5-2, after six innings.
