Game No. 136 — September 2, 2017
Other than a run scored on a wild pitch, the Sox offense couldn’t get through Masahiro Tanaka’s dominant performance on the mound. Yankees slugger Matt Holliday, fresh off the DL, mashed a three-run homer in the sixth inning to break a 1-1 tie and help his team retake the lead and, ultimately, the game. The loss put an end to Drew Pomeranz’s career-high eight-game winning streak and allowed the Yankees to pull within four-and-a-half games of the top spot in the A.L. East.
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.
