Rangers had rough time at 100-year-old park
BOSTON -- The Red Sox will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park this weekend. This is not a ballpark that has been kind to the Rangers in the past 40 years, even though they have won nine of their last 14 here going into Wednesday's game.

The Rangers, going into Wednesday, are 83-128 at Fenway since moving to Texas in 1972. That goes back to June 19, 1972, when the Rangers played their first game here at Fenway and lost, 3-0, to Sonny Seibert.

Jim Sundberg is the Rangers' all-time leader with 53 games played in Fenway, while Pete O'Brien's .355 batting average is the highest of any player with at least 120 plate appearances. Juan Gonzalez's 18 home runs and 51 RBIs in 49 games are more than twice as many as any other Rangers player. Danny Darwin is the Rangers' pitching leader with five wins at Fenway, while Kenny Rogers pitched 19 games here -- eight starts and 11 relief appearances -- that is one more than Jeff Russell.

The Rangers' 18-3 victory on Tuesday in their 211th game at Fenway marked the most runs they have scored here and their largest margin of victory. It was also the first time they have hit six home runs in a game at Fenway.
