Game No. 130 — August 27, 2017
The Sox had their first close game since August 22nd, even though it didn’t work out in their favor. Boston only managed to get one run on the board, an RBI double from Rafael Devers in the bottom of the sixth, while the Orioles pushed two RBI doubles across the plate to secure the win and bring their record up to .500.
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.
