Game No. 139 — September 5, 2017
After trailing the Blue Jays for nine innings, the Red Sox rallied to tie the game at the last minute, though it would be another ten innings before Hanley Ramírez would drive in the winning run. Boston used 12 pitchers in the marathon game with Hector Velázquez ultimately earning the win. The six hour, 19-inning game was the second longest in Fenway Park’s 105-year history.
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.
