Kinsler Stays in Game Despite Getting Three Stitches in Jaw
Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler took a shot off the chin while sliding into home plate in the third inning. He came home on a single by A.J. Pierzynski, and hit A's catcher John Jaso's helmet square in the chin. Kinsler left with a cut on his chin, and had three stitches put in the left side of his jaw between innings and stayed in the game. There was a brief delay before the fourth inning started, but Kinsler emerged from the dugout with a band-aid from his left cheek to his jaw and had blood on his jersey. Kinsler was cleared of any concussions symptoms by team physician Keith Meister.
