Game No. 017 — April 21, 2017
Despite the Orioles’ All-Star closer being on the DL, Baltimore’s pitching staff had a nice night on the mound, preventing the visiting Red Sox from scoring and picking up their seventh win in nine games. The story of the night though was O’s slugger Manny Machado’s last slide into second base in the eighth inning, spiking Dustin Pedroia’s calf and sending the Red Sox second-basemen limping off the field.
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.
