Game No. 113 — August 8, 2017
Chris Sale had another dominant outing against the Tampa Bay Rays, striking out 13 and issuing just a single walk in the shutout to improve his team’s winning streak to seven in a row. Closer Craig Kimbrel took over in the ninth inning, striking out all three batters he faced to earn his 28th save of the season.
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.
