Game No. 152 — September 22, 2017
The Red Sox blanked the Orioles for the second straight game though this one didn’t require more than nine innings. DH Hanley Ramírez went 3-for-5, driving in three runs, while Mookie Betts and Devin Marrero each hit two-run homers in the fourth inning. Chris Sale became just the second pitcher in Sox history — and the first in the A.L. since 1999 — to strike out 300 batters in a season, claiming the accomplishment on his 13th K of the game.
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.
