Game No. 124 — August 21, 2017
There’s speculation that the Indians and Red Sox will meet in the playoffs and if Monday night’s game was any indication, that will be a treat. The evenly matched teams traded the lead all night until Cleveland tied it up in the eighth inning. A throwing error in the bottom of the ninth by substitute first baseman Brock Holt allowed Cleveland to bring home the winning run.
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.
