The 2017 Boston Red Sox season was the 117th season in the team's history, and their 106th season at Fenway Park. They finished with a 93–69 record, the same as their previous season, two games ahead of the second-place New York Yankees. It was also the team's first season in 15 years without David Ortiz, due to his retirement. The Red Sox won their second straight American League East championship, the first time the team has won the division (which was established in 1969) in consecutive years; it was their ninth division title overall. In the postseason, they lost in four games in the American League Division Series to the eventual 2017 World Series champions, the Houston Astros.

Regular season[edit]

Opening Day, April 3 vs. Pittsburgh[edit]

Reigning AL Cy Young winner Rick Porcello made his first opening day start of his career, going 6 ​13 innings, allowing three runs on six hits in the win. The Red Sox bats could only get one hit off of Pirates starter Gerrit Cole through 4 ​23 innings but then strung together six 2-out hits. Jackie Bradley Jr. started the rally with a triple of the right field wall, Pablo Sandoval legged out an infield single, Sandy León laid down a bunt down the third base line, Dustin Pedroia with a single down the middle, which plated Pablo Sandoval, Andrew Benintendi with a three-run shot in the Pirates bullpen and Mookie Betts reached second on another infield single and a throwing error by the shortstop Jordy Mercer. Hanley Ramírez made the third out and Cole's day was over. Pittsburgh got to Porcello in the seventh, where he gave up three hits and three runs, two of them inherited by Matt Barnes. Barnes eventually got out of the inning. Neither team would score in the remainder of the game and Craig Kimbrel closed out the game on one hit and one hit batsman.

April 3–6, vs. Pittsburgh

Red Sox won the series 2–0 (8–3 runs)
April 7–10, in Detroit
In the series opener, Steven Wright gave up four runs in 6 ​23 innings. Down by four runs going into the eighth, the Red Sox put a five spot on the board, including a three-run shot by Pablo Sandoval, only to have the bullpen give up two more runs to win it for the Tigers. In game two, Boston took an early 1–0 lead, but that's all they would get. Detroit scored four times against Eduardo Rodríguez and dropped two games in a row. With several players already down with the flu, Andrew Benintendi threw up during the sixth inning in the outfield but could finish the game. Rick Porcello gave up eleven hits but the Tigers could only push four players across the plate. In late game heroics, Boston scored four times to take the lead in the eighth. Craig Kimbrel gave up one run but eventually closed the game. Chris Sale went 7 ​23 innings, striking out 10 Tigers and allowing only two runs in the final game of the series, but that was enough for Detroit.

Red Sox lost the series 1–3 (14–17 runs)
April 11–12, vs. Baltimore
Drew Pomeranz went 6 innings of one-run ball in his season debut. Boston up by one run, scored three runs each in the seventh and eighth inning to put the game out of reach. In the second game of the odd two-game series against a division rival, Steven Wright was pulled after 1 ​13 innings, giving up 8 runs on as many hits. The bullpen allowed four more runs over the course of the game. A rally in the middle innings, where Boston scored 5 runs in three consecutive innings, fell way short.
Red Sox tied the series 1—1 (13–13 runs)
April 13, vs. Pittsburgh
In the makeup game from the opening series of the season, Eduardo Rodríguez allowed two first innings runs before settling in. Down by two runs coming into the eighth, the Pirates allowed three men to reach with one out, two via base on balls.

Xander Bogaerts eventually drove in Hanley and Craig Kimbrel shut the door.

April 14–17, vs. Tampa Bay
Rick Porcello was shelled for 8 runs in 4 ​13 innings, the most since April 19, 2015 vs. Baltimore. Down by 8 runs coming into the ninth, the Red Sox rallied for three, but that was all they could get. The doubles streak of Mitch Moreland ended after seven consecutive games. Chris Sale pitched another gem in his third start and won hist first game of the season. He allowed just three hits and one run in seven innings, striking out 12 Rays batters. Moreland scored twice, on a solo shot in the second and a Sandy León groundout, providing the only runs for Boston. Drew Pomeranz didn't make it through the fifth with five allowed runs, but the Red Sox out-hit the Rays 17–7. Pablo Sandoval ripped his team-leading fourth home run of the season onto the green monster. On Patriots' Day, the Red Sox played their traditional 11 am game and quickly scored four runs in the first two innings, after Tampa Bay took a two run lead in the first. Steven Wright gave up three runs, one of them earned, in six innings of work. The bullpen kept the Rays off the scoreboard and Craig Kimbrel struck out the side for his sixth save of the season.

May 5–7, at Minneapolis
Matt Barnes gave up a walk-off home run to former AL MVP Joe Mauer, after the Red Sox rallied for two runs in the ninth to tie the game. Eduardo Rodríguez pitched six innings, giving up three runs on seven hits. The bats came alive in the second game of the series, scoring eight runs in the second inning. The bases were empty with two outs before Chris Young started a rally with a solo home run. Nine batters reached base, eight of them via the hit and one of them on an error. Boston put three more runs on the board, including another home run by Young and by Sandy León. Rick Porcello went seven innings of one-run ball. In the rubber match, finally Chris Sale received decent run support. Boston tagged the AL ERA leader, with 0.66, Ervin Santana for three runs in the first inning, a Dustin Pedroia solo home run and an absolute blast by Andrew Benintendi with Xander Bogaerts on first, which left the ballpark. After Boston extended the lead to four, Sale struggled in the fifth and the Twins tied up the game, only to give up a two-run home run to Sandy León which barely left the park. Up by three in the eighth, Matt Barnes gave up a home run and could not make an out. Lefty Robby Scott got the out against the lefty batter but a run scored on the sacrifice fly. With the tying run on third and only one out, Craig Kimbrel came in in a high-leverage situation and struck out both batters he faced. In a 39-minute top of the ninth, seven consecutive players reached base safely with one out, before Deven Marrero grounded out. The inning was extended on a fielding error. Four more batters reached base safely, including three consecutive walks. Chris Young, the 15th batter of the inning, became the third out. Except for Marrero, every hitter in the line-up reached base safely; ten runs came across the plate to score. Santana allowed six runs in the game, all of them earned. He allowed only three runs in his previous six starts combined. Sale extended his 10+ strikeout streak to six.
Red Sox won the series 2–1 (32–12 runs)

May 9–11, at Milwaukee
The Brewers tagged Drew Pomeranz for six runs in four innings in the loss. Boston narrowed the gap to two runs in the fifth but Heath Hembree allowed three more runs in the sixth. Kyle Kendrick also allowed six runs in his start, a hole too deep for the offense to climb out of. Both teams collected 49 hits in the first two games combined. Coming into the game with a career ERA of 5.26 in day games, as opposed to his 3.36 ERA in night games, Eduardo Rodríguez pitched a three-hit, one-run game over six frames. He was pinch hit for in the seventh. Boston left the go-ahead run stranded at third with nobody out in the top of eighth. Craig Kimbrel was again summoned from the bullpen in a non-save situation, with the go-ahead run at first and one out in the bottom of the eighth. He struck out Eric Thames, allowed an infield hit and the runner from second advanced to third on a wild pitch. Kimbrel ended the threat with another strikeout. In the top of the ninth, Christian Vázquez walked and Deven Marrero reached on an error. Mookie Betts put three runs on the board with his fifth home run of the season. Kimbrel struck out the side on nine pitches to secure the win.
