Game No. 122 — August 19, 2017
New York starter CC Sabathia returned from the disabled list on Saturday night and kept Boston under control for six innings. Although Red Sox starter Chris Sale pitched well, he got tagged for two home runs which would end up being the difference in the game. The Sox seemed like they were ready to make a late inning comeback but the Yankee bullpen was able to close the door and propel their team to victory.
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.
