Game No. 108 — August 1, 2017
Tuesday night’s game was a wacky, back-and-forth one chock full of dramatic plays. Indians’ outfielder Austin Jackson made an incredible leap into the Red Sox bullpen to rob Hanley Ramírez of a home run in the fifth inning. Later, with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Boston catcher Christian Vázquez blasted a three-run home run over Jackson’s head to walk off with the win and recapture first place in the division.
For every Red Sox game this season, we will be visualizing the final score. Our ground rules: scores must be posted before the first pitch of the next game and must represent the final score. New for this year: home games will be on a white background, away games on black, and the Red Sox will always be red. Follow the whole project here or get weekly recaps in your inbox.
We'll be publishing the entire season's worth of visualizations in a 6x9-inch, softcover, perfect-bound book! Preorder at foredesign.co/soxscores.
