Game No. 144 — September 12, 2017
Tuesday night’s one-sided contest against the slumping Oakland A’s saw not one, but two Mookie Betts’ home runs sail over the Green Monster and out of the park, accounting for six of Boston’s 11 runs. On the defensive side, starter Eduardo Rodríguez allowed just one hit and one run while striking out nine batters in six innings of work.
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.
