Game No. 118 — August 14, 2017
The Indians came back to Fenway Park to make up an August 2 rainout and ended up raining on the Red Sox parade. Boston starter Doug Fister ran into trouble early and ended up being chased from the game in the fifth inning after giving up five runs. Cleveland’s designated hitter Edwin Encarnación hit two monster two-run home runs as he powered his team to victory.
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.
