Ian Kinsler will remain in the leadoff spot despite a slump that had reached 5-for-47 at the start of the Baltimore series.

Kinsler's walks rate has also slowed, to two in the last nine games entering this series. Manager Ron Washington said a radical move with Kinsler would smack of "panic."

Said Washington: "This is the first time that Kinsler has scuffled all year. He's my leadoff guy, and I trust him. He'll figure it out. We'll let him work it out. I've got nowhere else to go."
