Game No. 133 — August 30, 2017
The Red Sox completed the sweep of the Blue Jays on Wednesday night behind some solid pitching from starter Rick Porcello, who struck out seven and gave up only one run — a solo home run in the third inning. Boston struggled against Toronto’s starter J.A. Happ but warmed up once the bullpen entered the game, racking up six of their seven runs in the seventh and eighth innings.
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.
