Kenny Rogers Perfect Game Box Score

Kenny Rogers was a four year veteran of the mound who focused on relief pitching. The Rangers converted him to a starter the previous season and he took the mound with a 10-6 record before this game. He was hit hard his previous three starts, but would pitch a masterpiece today.

"We are ecstatic to have acquired a pitcher of Kenny Rogers caliber. He gives us a front of the rotation starter that should serve as a real boost to our ballclub." - Steve Phillips
