7 Apr 2017: ‘Twas not enough offense to back up Ryu

‘Twas not enough offense to back up Hyun-
jin Ryu’s comeback from his elbow’s ail.
His efforts strong, but we tapped just one run
Off of the Rockies’ lefty – no avail.
Encouraged, still, we are, as the bullpen
Refused to let the Rockies put up more.
And though that advantage was not taken,
Our favorite ginger hit well: two-for-four.
But there may be a curse upon our team,
For lefties are the Boys’ Achilles heel.
Each southpaw-meeting’s like an ugly dream
That I may not wake up from, since it’s real.
The eventide, though, gives me hope – for He,
The greatest pitcher in the realm, we’ll see.
