Game No. 129 — August 26, 2017
Boston was on the wrong side of a a lopsided loss for the third straight game as they got shut out by the visiting Orioles on Saturday afternoon. Baltimore’s starter Kevin Gausman only allowed four singles in 7 ⅔ innings and struck out five batters. Sox starter Eduardo Rodríguez didn’t fare quite as well, giving up five runs in the second inning alone.
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.
