1990 At County Stadium, Ranger right-hander Nolan Ryan gets his 300th victory, defeating the Brewers, 11-3. The 43 year-old from Alvin, Texas will compile 324 victories during his 27-year big league career.
2002 The Rangers, in a 17-6 victory over the Yankees, hit six doubles in the second inning, all off Mike Mussina. New York's starting pitcher joins Hall of Famer Lefty Grove (1934 Red Sox) as only the second pitcher in major league history to allow that many two-baggers in one frame.
2007 The trading deadline prompts a busy day for the Braves when they deal eight players in three different transactions, including obtaining Mark Teixeira and southpaw reliever Ron Mahay from the Rangers for the highly touted rookie backstop Jarrod Saltalamacchia and four minor leaguers. Atlanta also gets bullpen help from the Royals and Padres, with Octavio Dotel and Royce Ring joining the team for Kyle Davies, who will now pitch for Kansas City, and Wil Ledezma and Will Startup go to San Diego.
2007 Elvis Andrus and Jarrod Saltalamacchia, along with three minor league pitchers, Matt Harrison, Neftali Feliz, and Beau Jones, are traded by the Braves to the Rangers for Mark Teixeira and Ron Mahay. The trading deadline deal will help build the foundation for Texas' success in the coming seasons, with Andrus and Feliz playing essential roles on the American League champions teams in 2010 and 2011.
2013 The Rangers complete a three-game sweep of the Angels when Adrian Beltre leads off the ninth inning with a home run, giving the team a 2-1 walk-off victory. Texas won each of the Arlington contests of the series with a game-ending round-tripper, marking the first time the feat has been accomplished since 1999 when the Diamondbacks swept the Expos at the Bank One Ballpark.
