Kinsler is the third second baseman in major league history with 30 homers and 30 stolen bases in a season. Alfonso Soriano, who has done it three times, and Brandon Phillips are the others.
His 30th homer was a three-run shot in the eighth that put Texas up 8-3. Kinsler stole his 30th base Thursday.
Texas moved within 7½ games of Boston, which played the New York Yankees on Friday, in the wild card.
