1977 The Rangers trade Lenny Randle, who is still under suspension for his spring training altercation in which he fractured manager Frank Lucchesi’s cheekbone, to the Mets for a player to be named later (infielder Rick Auerbach) and cash. The 28 year-old second baseman will be shifted to third base by Joe Torre, the team’s new skipper who will replace Joe Frazier.
1990 Ranger hurler Nolan Ryan ties Bob Feller's major league record of throwing twelve one-hitters when he beats the White Sox, 1-0. The only hit allowed by the 43 year-old right-hander is Ron Kittle's single to right field on a check-swing in the second inning.
2006 Ranger reliever Francisco Cordero blows his third consecutive chance to save a game when the A's tie the game 4-4 in the ninth and then score two in the next frame to beat the Rangers, 6-4. The Dominican closer's fifth blown save establishes a big league mark for the first month of the season and overshadows the sixth straight game that the Texas outfielder Kevin Mench has homered, a grand slam that sets a team record.
