Game No. 155 — September 24, 2017
The Red Sox found themselves in another three-run hole against the Reds until the eighth inning when Mookie Betts took over. With the bases loaded, Boston’s right fielder laced a bases-clearing double to tie the game. Two batters later, Betts bolted home from second on an infield single legged out by Rafael Devers to give his club the lead. Craig Kimbrel locked down the ninth inning to claim his 35th save of the season and complete the sweep of Cincinnati.
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.
