"That was for my teammates," Kinsler told reporters after the game. "It had nothing to do with the fans. It's for my teammates. It’s an inside thing with them. I was trying to get everyone fired up. We had a tough road trip. I’m a passionate player. I tried to get my teammates going. That was it."

The 36-year-old veteran also celebrated his home run with a dramatic bat flip, which he characterized as a rare act for him.

Kinsler refused to reveal to reporters exactly what he said after he touched home plate Thursday, but when asked if it included the F-word, he smiled and said "probably a lot of them, yeah." He said he hasn't noticed that Padres fans have been upset with his play.

Padres manager Andy Green said he didn't want to excuse Kinsler's reaction, but he did "understand the emotion of the game a little bit and the frustration that he's felt up to this point in time of the season."

"The world we live in, you hear a lot of hostility and some of that comes out a times," Green said in his postgame news conference. "It’s not the right response, but understanding the emotion of the game, that’s probably the best response."
