Game No. 154 — September 23, 2017
The Red Sox picked up their 90th win on Saturday with a shut out of the Cincinnati Reds. Starter Eduardo Rodríguez went 7 ⅔ innings, striking out six and giving up only three hits while first baseman Mitch Moreland smashed a three-run homer to give his team a comfortable lead. In one of the memorable moments of the season, manager John Farrell got to watch his son Luke pitch a scoreless inning for the opposition.
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.
