Game No. 109 — August 3, 2017
Sox starter and reigning CY Young winner Rick Porcello earned a rare win on Thursday night, his first since June, to end his four-game losing streak. He had plenty of run support for a change, with Rafael Devers mashing a three-run homer in the first inning, Mookie Betts adding a two-run shot in the second, and Andrew Benintendi going 3-for-3 and reaching base five times.
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.
