Game No. 002 — April 5, 2017
Chris Sale made his Red Sox debut on a chilly Wednesday night, dazzling fans with a seven-inning shutout performance, striking out seven, and giving up only three hits. The bats were as cold as the weather until catcher Sandy León belted a three-run homer over the Green Monster to pick up the win in the bottom of the twelfth.
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.
