The Ian Kinsler who bats at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington has been undeniably different than the one who hits on the road. At home, Kinsler plays like the second baseman who has rewritten the franchise's record book for the position in less than six seasons. He entered Tuesday with the team's highest home batting average at .328 and led the Rangers at home in runs (26), hits (38), walks (20) and is second with nine doubles. On the road, he sports the team's lowest batting average at .123 and has more strikeouts (16) than hits (13 in 106 at-bats). "That is really the toughest question you can answer because there is nothing you can say," Kinsler said. "There is no difference. I mean I am always comfortable at home. I love sleeping in my own bed, being in this clubhouse and playing in front of our home fans. I think I will always be better at home. I think a lot of players are. The road this year has been pretty bad. I can't put my finger on it."
Kinsler hot at home, cold on road
