Game No. 014 — April 18
With Eduardo Rodriguez away from the team on paternity leave, Brian Johnson was called up from Pawtucket to make his second ever major league start. Boston’s bats came to life against the Blue Jays who started the day with a 2-10 record. Mitch Moreland, Pablo Sandoval, and Mookie Betts each racked up three hits, including three RBI for Moreland and a home run for Betts. The Jays made a last ditch effort in the ninth but came up a run short, giving the Sox their fourth win in a row.
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.
