Game No. 149 — September 17, 2017
The Tampa Bay pitching staff held Boston to just three hits all afternoon, with starter Jake Odorizzi allowing just one — a two-run home run to Jackie Bradley, Jr. in the sixth inning. That would be all the scoring the Sox would manage despite their defense giving up only three runs, allowing the Rays to avoid the series sweep.
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.
