Sept. 30, 1999

On that day, the Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 7-0 to go up 10 games in the AL West.


That is the only time, ever, in the 50 year history of the franchise, that the Texas Rangers (or Washington Senators) have had a larger (or even equal) division lead than they do at this moment. And it lasted for all of 29 hours and 34 minutes.


Soak it in.
