Game No. 003 — April 7, 2017
With the flu running through the clubhouse, the Red Sox struggled to put together enough offense to overcome the Tigers in their home opener at Comerica Park in Detroit. After falling behind in the first inning, Boston managed a five-run eighth inning capped off by a dramatic, go-ahead home run from Pablo Sandoval. The bullpen couldn’t hang on though, giving up the lead, and ultimately the game, to the Tigers.
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.
