11 May 2017: Though hope was lost at first, we tried to bite

Though hope was lost at first, we tried to bite
And at least tie, but in the end we failed.
Poor Ryu could not conquer Coors that night:
In just a few innings, he was impaled.
Late in the game, we hit the seven mark
And threatened to secede from losing stance.
The offense hot and sharp just like the shark
But they could not complete the final dance.
The noble Chase went three-for-five—how rare!
And also tripled just for disbelief.
The bullpen kept the Dodgers on a prayer,
But ‘twas not answered by the omni chief.
The next day saw the wrath of Clayton shine,
And sent a shiver down the Rockies’ spine.
