Game No. 114 — August 9, 2017
Red Sox starter Rick Porcello pitched six strong innings, including an immaculate inning in the fifth, to help his club notch their eighth consecutive win. The Rays helped out too with two wild pitches, a passed ball, a hit batter, and two intentional walks in the same inning that would put Boston in a comfortable lead for the rest of the night.
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.
