Game No. 038 — May 16, 2017
Another leadoff home run by Mookie Betts, the tenth of his career, set the tone for the first of two interleague games in St. Louis. Despite an impressive 21-15 record coming into the game, the Cardinals had a tough night in the field, committing three errors and giving up two home runs. Sox starter Eduardo Rodríguez threw six quality innings, allowing only three runs and striking out five batters.
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.
