Game No. 112 — August 6, 2017
The numbers showed that Red Sox outfielder Chris Young would perform well against the White Sox starter Mike Pelfrey and they were right. Young drove in five of Boston’s six runs, including two home runs. Starter Doug Fister put together his second strong appearance in a row, allowing only three runs and striking out seven batters to earn the win.
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.
