The franchise started their journey in 1961 as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C., after the city's first ball club. Later on, they moved to Minnesota and became the Twins. But after 1971 season, the Senator moved to Arlington, Texas, and debuted as the Rangers the following spring. They played their first game on April 15, 1972, which they lost 1–0 at the hands of California Angels. The Rangers finished the season in second place in 1974 with an 84-76 record in the American League. It was the first time that a MLB team finished above .500 after two consecutive 100-loss seasons, a record they still hold. The team had some mild experience from 1977 to 1979. In 1986 the Rangers remained in the pennant race for the entire season though they came up just short with an 87-75 record.
The Rangers defeated the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 by 30-3. Their 27-run margin of victory is also a modern day MLB record.
