Game No. 126 — August 23, 2017
With Indians’ ace Corey Kluber on the mound, the Red Sox felt lucky to get a home run off of him in the fifth inning. Boston starter Drew Pomeranz and the bullpen were able to maintain a narrow, one-run lead until the ninth inning when their offense put up four runs to add another notch to the win column.
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.
