Game No. 106 — July 30, 2017
The Red Sox were nursing a two run lead heading into the eighth inning against the Royals but Kansas City promptly loaded the bases against reliever Matt Barnes and scored four times to take the lead. Boston managed to load the bases in the bottom of the ninth but were ultimately stymied by Royals closer Kelvin Herrera.
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.
