Game No. 125 — August 22, 2017
If it weren’t for the leadoff home run he gave up, Boston starter Doug Fister would have thrown a no-hitter. Instead, he had to settle for a one hit, complete game performance that included six strikeouts and just two walks. The Sox offense battered the Indians’ pitching staff throughout the game, tagging them for 12 hits and nine runs, with Eduardo Núñez alone batting in five runs.
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.
