Game No. 6 – April 10, 2017
Monday afternoon’s game saw a dream pitching matchup between Boston’s new star Chris Sale and Detroit’s ace Justin Verlander. Sale struck out ten and pitched into the eighth inning but was edged out by the Tigers despite allowing only two runs in the game — a home run by Ian Kinsler in the sixth and a fielding error that allowed the go ahead run to score in the eighth.
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.
