Game No. 021 — April 27, 2017
Despite a dominant performance from starting pitcher Chris Sale, who struck out ten, the Sox offense couldn’t get anything going against Yankees’ star Masahiro Tanaka, who threw the first complete game for New York since 2015. The Sox only put three men on base all night — two singles from Hanley Ramírez and one from Xander Bogaerts — as run production continues to be the primary problem facing the team.
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.
