Game No. 117 — August 13, 2017
With a one-run lead in the ninth and flame-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman on the mound, the Yankees thought they had the game wrapped up but Red Sox rookie Rafael Devers stepped up to the plate and knocked a 103mph fastball into the stands to tie the game. In the top of the tenth, Boston loaded the bases, allowing fellow rookie Andrew Benintendi to knock in the game-winning run.
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.
