That’s eight straight times that fate has gone our way!
A great start to our hosting of the Rocks,
With Wood headlining keeping them at bay;
There was no use for them to clean their socks!
The offense bright again, but just one home
Run this time: that was Puig’s far-flying shot!
A healthy dose of base hits upped the ohm
Count; Cody’s RBIs, I’d not forgot!
The frights we had when Corey’s leg looked hurt
And prayers we sent to banish the severe.
But just a cramp it was – could be much worse!
So it is looking like we’ll have no fear!
Is nine the next streak that we will achieve?
With Kershaw on the mound, I do believe.
A triple-dinger day for someone else
Besides the Belly! (he still got one though)
Young Corey keeps on rolling, handing L’s
To other teams with sweet offensive flow!
This fire let McCarthy just relax
And throw six innings that lacked any runs.
The sons were bright tonight, and their attacks
Will be recalled and remembered by tons!
A plea to thee, regarding game of stars:
Sweet Seager still does not hold starter’s spot!
And Cody does not have a place with tsars,
So vote, you fools – much sadness if you not.
And pray tonight for sanity in Hill’s
Performance, hoping we prolong the kill.
And yet again, Sir Seager saves the day!
Advantage taken of the walks allowed
That loaded up the bases: oh hooray!
And how the slam took us from soft to loud!
Since Stripling and Ryu had rougher days,
‘Twas looking like a sweep would not occur.
But by the two home runs of Cody’s way
And other sweet events, we did conquer!
Then Kenley came to save the same real quick
Recording his two hundredth career save!
An all-around comeback that’s sure to stick
And put a smile upon the face of Dave!
Another day to rest before our ace
Will take the mound in Cleveland to debase.
The wonders of our shortstop shall be sung!
Since for the first time, he has walked it off!
‘Twas almost caught, so for the Reds it stung
And as we won, at them we merely scoffed!
Sir Wood returned and did, for most part, well,
Despite a situation that he got
Into in inning six, which caused a tie of hell
That spiced up an already real hot plot.
The first frame saw much offense; Cody went
O’er fence in right to start the wondrous night.
The end saw Kenley keep the game content
Which led to victory to end the fight!
So sweep is in our grasp, if Ryu can
Pitch deep and keep at bay the Cincy man!
Oh Kershaw, blest you are the King of kings
For dominating enemies so well!
And to the Nats, your pitch selection brings
A fear they’ll end up in a circ of hell!
Against another ace did our team go,
But this time batters overcame the hill.
It started in the sixth with Seager’s blow
To tie it up, and later on we grilled
By brazier as Yasmani doubled in
Gonzalez to accomplish rally’s goal!
Then Kenley came to finish off the win
And satisfy the fans’ collective soul!
A day off’s what they need, so time to ‘lax
And take in just one day of sportless pax.
Three rockets shot us to our fifth straight win!
The pilots: Cody, Chase, and Logan’s first
Of this year! Shocked I am about adding
Up all those runs against Leake (not the worst).
Ole Rich was fine in his five silver frames,
With just one run that came from a sac fly.
The bullpen followed with some stunning claims
That banned the birds from scoring one more guy.
Their chance was lost when Cody fielded one
Misplayed by Corey; next up was the throw
That nabbed DeJong from taking home a run!
Their third base coach had brought upon this woe.
A chance to keep this high-momentum streak
Alive rests on if Kenta can bespeak.
Defeated are the Cubs at Sir Wood’s sword!
Their two hits not enough to clean a speck
As Alex nulled their total of runs scored
In his five innings – not so much a trek.
The veterans A-Gon and Chase displayed
Their still existent power in their bats!
Both sending songs to center with a blade
Of ash that boosted both their batting stats.
Yasmani, recently afire, clutched
The moment, bringing in Sir Corey’s feet
To add a run for insurance and such,
But ‘twas no need, for Cubs were beat.
Tonight, B-Mac, who’s been sweet as of late,
Will also try to close Chicago’s gate.
