Rangers' Kinsler takes a lick but keeps on ticking
ARLINGTON — Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler collided with Oakland catcher John Jasso while plating a run in the third inning. The mishap opened a cut on the left side of Kinsler's chin, which required several stitches to close. The game was delayed about eight minutes between innings while the Rangers' medical staff patched up Kinsler. Kinsler is not expected to miss any time due to the injury.
