Game No. 160 — September 29, 2017
With the American League East pennant one win away, Boston was ready to celebrate on Friday night but Houston delayed the festivities, edging out their hosts by one run. The Astros, who lead the league in nearly every offensive category, depended on their pitching to earn their 100th win of the season. With two games left, Boston holds a two-game lead over the Yankees 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.
