Game No. 101 — July 24, 2017
Boston’s offense couldn’t overcome Seattle’s starting pitcher James Paxton, who struck out ten and held the Sox sluggers to just four singles all night. Together, the Mariner’s pitching staff issued zero walks and didn’t allow a single run to cross the plate. Their team’s scoring spree in the second inning would be all they’d need to take the first game of the series at Safeco Field.
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.
