Game No. 072 — June 21, 2017
The Red Sox got a solid start from Drew Pomeranz and back-to-back home runs from Andrew Benintendi and Xander Bogaerts. The bullpen buckled in the eighth inning though, loading the bases on two walks and a single and giving up a grand slam to Royals catcher Salvador Pérez to put Kansas City on top for good.
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.
