Game No. 115 — August 11, 2017
Boston held a small but fairly comfortable lead throughout the game on Friday night on the back of starter Eduardo Rodríguez who struck out seven and held New York scoreless through six innings. Yankees hitters blew up the bullpen late in the game though to score all five of their runs and take the lead — and a lengthy winning streak — away from the Red Sox.
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.
