Kinsler's Quiet Quest For Another 30/30 Season

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 2-3 with 1 BB, 2 HRs (his 22nd and 23rd), 2 RBIs, 2 runs scored, and 1 SB (his 23rd) against the Rays. I've been talking about Ryan Braun's legitimate shot at a 30/30 season seemingly all year, but Kinsler has quietly put himself in a position to have another one if he gets hot. At the very least, it looks like he's poised to have a 25/25 season, which is also quite rare.

Batting 3rd, Ryan Braun was 1-5 against the Cardinals.

Pinch hitting, Sam Fuld was 0-1 against the Rangers.

Craig Breslow pitched 2 scoreless innings on 1 hit and 3 Ks against the Indians. Good to see Breslow finally have a dominant outing.
