"It was a little more unexpected than the last time," said Kinsler, wh finished 3-for-5 on Tuesday, falling a triple short of the cycle. "I hit 11 home runs in September -- I've never done that before. But as far as the feeling goes, it's about the same as last time."
Kinsler is the fourth player this season in the 30-30 club, joining the Red Sox's Jacoby Ellsbury, the Dodgers' Matt Kemp and the Brewers' Ryan Braun.
"It's a pretty cool accomplishment," Kinsler said. "I'm proud of it, but there are still a lot more important things to accomplish this year."
