Game No. 157 — September 26, 2017
Without several key players in the lineup — Mookie Betts, Eduardo Nunez, and Dustin Pedroia are all nursing injuries — the Sox offense had a hard time getting going. Chris Sale had an uncharacteristically bad start, giving up eight hits in five innings, including four home runs — two to Josh Donaldson. Tuesday night’s game marked the sixth time Donaldson has hit two home runs in a single game this 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.
