Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 2-4 with 1 HR (his 30th), 1 RBI, 1 run scored, and 1 SB (his 26th) against the A's. Kinsler's HR in the 8th inning tied the game at 2 apiece. The Rangers would go on to win the game. This is the 2nd time Kinsler has hit 30 HRs in his career. The Rangers have 7 games left on their schedule. So unless he sits, Kinsler will have 7 games to swipe 4 bags to reach 30/30. Call me crazy, but that doesn't sound inconceivable.
Pinch hitting, Josh Satin was 1-2 with 1 double (his 1st) and 2 RBIs against the Cardinals. This was Satin's 1st extra base hit and also the 1st time he's driven anyone in. Maybe this will earn him a little more playing time in the coming days.
Batting 5th, Danny Valencia was 0-4 with 1 BB against the Mariners.
Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 0-4 against the Cubs.
Michael Schwimer pitched 1 scoreless inning on 1 hit against the Nationals.
