And now, each team is one win from the gold.
We figured out Verlander to prolong
This Series of a lifetime! Now we’ve rolled
Into November for the final song.
The first five frames were frightening. Hill just
Went less than five, but was not terrible.
Chase took a hit by pitch; part of his lust.
That kept alive the chance to save the world!
Chris tied it up with double! Corey sac’d
To take the lead! Then next frame, Joctober
Continued with an oppo bomb so whacked!
Then Kenley pitched 6 outs to say “over.”
Tonight’s the final stand. Le jeu ultime.
May baseball gods bless Yu to lead This Team.
The heartbreak stings. The tears are fresh. I’m numb.
That rollercoaster last night has me drained.
So many times, it seemed that we would come
Back from behind. Now all my hope is stained.
Real comfortable I felt when we were far
Ahead at the beginning. Then, Kersh fell
Apart like a poorly-constructed car.
My heart broke when I saw his face unwell.
Beyond belief is this experience
Of never knowing what will happen next.
My stress is too damn high; I’m on the fence
As all these games have left me so perplexed.
It’s do or die. Tomorrow, back at home
Will Rich command the pace and SAVE US FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
You like that?! Because I sure as hell do!
With almost flawless pitching job from Wood
And bullpen’s mastery, ‘Stros just hit two!
It was late when the offense understood
The time to rally was upon the back
Of Cody, who initiated launch
With double in the seventh; then attack
From Logan tied it up with his true staunch!
The ninth rolled ’round, their closer fell apart
And with two on, Sir Belli struck it well!
Then after a sac fly, Joc smacked a dart
Into the right field stands! It made me yell!
Tonight, the most amazing lefty fights
To bring this team to long-missed soaring heights!
An epic battle back-and-forth, but sad
It is that in the end, we did not win.
So many balls sailed far; the bats were rad!
Insanity came at the ninth inning
When Kenley let a shot to tie the game.
Then in the bottom, Cody barely missed
A walk-off shot; the wind is what I blame!
Then Josh Fields sucked and two straight shots were dished.
But next, Puig crushed the candy, brought us close,
Then Kiké brought in Logan: tie revived!
B-Mac then let two score. Hope did not doze
When Charlie made it close! But end arrived.
Exhausted is my state, I need a rest.
Yu’s got game 3; I pray he does his best.
BLESSED BY THE GINGER IS THIS HOLY LAND!
WHEN BACKED INTO THE CORNER, HE PREVAILED
AND SENT THAT PITCH INTO THE GLOVE OF FAN!
OH, HOW THAT WONDROUS STRIKE JUST SAILED AND SAILED!
THE MIRRORING OF KIRK IS QUITE A SPOOK
FOR IT WAS TWENTY NINE YEARS TO THE DAY!
AMAZING THAT BOTH HIT A WALK-OFF NUKE!
EACH FAN TODAY SHOULD CELEBRATE AND SWAY!
FROM MIND, DO NOT ERASE THE BULLPEN’S JOB.
STUPENDOUS THEY HAVE BEEN – NO HITS IN EIGHT!
THIS VICTORY TASTES SWEET LIKE CORN ON COB,
BUT THIS WAR ISN’T OVER; UNSEALED FATE.
TO WRIGLEY WE WILL GO FOR AT MOST THREE,
AND YU WILL KICK IT OFF. PLEASE GIVE US GLEE!
With ninety wins, they seem invincible!
Enough offense was found to help Ryu
As he threw six frames with his arsenal
To tell the Pirates that their streak is through.
A river-shot from Grandy helped us out,
As well as Kiké’s late insuring hit.
Then in the eighth, a back to back of clout
Which made sure that the series won’t be split.
No other team has eighty – how insane!
The record’s off the chart; we need more space
To document the stats that show our reign
In this terrific season full of grace!
At last, we come back home, but just for three.
So Kenta kicks it off – Maeken’s free!
I thought the derby was back in July,
But I guess it continued yesterday
In Queens since we hit five into the sky!
Indeed, it seems, the bats came out to play.
Sir Rich got real unlucky in the first
And our offense did not hit ’til the sixth,
Which is when the power began to burst
By adding many dingers to the mix!
The best-played fifty games in history
Of our great franchise – heavens! what a run.
The total of victories: forty three,
And maybe counting? Scenes if we can stun!
Another Sunday night to watch our team.
We’ll see if Ryu repeats what we dream!
