Ian Kinsler stays in game despite getting three stitches in jaw

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.

Kinsler has reached base his first two plate appearances tonight, singling in the first inning and drawing a walk in the third.
