Game No. 001 — April 3, 2017
Spring was in the air on Opening Day at Fenway Park as the Red Sox hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates for some early-season interleague play. Cy Young winner Rick Porcello threw seven solid innings to earn his first win of the season. The Sox offense put together an exciting five run fifth inning featuring a triple from Jackie Bradley Jr., a key bunt single from Sandy León, and a three-run homer from future Rookie of the Year Andrew Benintendi.
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.
