Game No. 019 — April 23
Eduardo Rodríguez’ return to the Red Sox was a spectacular one, striking out seven batters and giving up only one hit to the first place Orioles. Andrew Benintendi had his first five-hit game while Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramírez, and Mitch Moreland each added a home run. In other news, reliever Matt Barnes was ejected in the eighth for throwing at Manny Machado’s head in retaliation for spiking Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia two days earlier.
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.
