ALDS Game No. 2 — October 6, 2017
The numbers say that Houston’s offense is the best in the league and their play on Friday afternoon backed that up as they easily took the second game of the Division series. Boston starter Drew Pomeranz was dealt four earned runs and chased from the game in the third inning and the bullpen didn’t fair much better. Now just one loss away from elimination, the Red Sox don’t have much time to figure things out.
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.
