The Red Sox became the first team since at least 1920 to reach base safely at least 23 times in a game in which they had six or fewer hits, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Fifteen walks, two hit batsmen, six hits.Here is the box score of that September 17, 1920 game.
This was the eighth time in club history the Red Sox have received 15 or more walks in a game. The club record is 18, in a 14-13, 12-inning loss to the Tigers on Sept. 17, 1920.
The 275 pitches thrown by eight White Sox pitchers, including utility infielder Leury Garcia, are the most ever thrown by a White Sox team in a game of 14 innings or fewer.
Alex Speier of WEEI notes:
The Sox were 3-for-17 with runners in scoring position, a circumstance in which they are now hitting .184 this year. ...Baseball Reference and ESPN both have the Red Sox hitting .192 with RISP (not .184), which is actually better than two teams: Kansas City and Houston. ... With RISP and two outs, the Red Sox are batting .179 in their 15 games so far.
The fifth through ninth spots in the Red Sox lineup combined to go 1-for-26.
