Another outing fine for rocking Ross
Whom in six limited the flying team
To just one run and three meek hits. A boss
He was in Disney’s land! The only scream
From Angels’ bats was Trout the Great’s home run.
Well, neither team was loud upon the box
But our crew put up two more than their one
Thanks to Puig’s homer and JT’s orange locks.
Today we’ll see which Dodgers make the squad
To represent among the best of those
That let the pitchers hit. I pray to gods
Of baseball that Kemp gets to start the shows.
But also, we must wrap up freeway stint
With Wood tonight attempting to throw flint.
A fest of homers held by bluest bats!
Two bombs each from sirs Cody and Kiké
With more from Joc and who could forget Max?
But ultimately, JT saved the day
In extra innings with his shot to left!
Remember when our power at the start
Of season was quite low? That notion’s cleft
As we now lead the league in homers! Heart
Of goodness, though, was not with Rich on hill
Because he struggled and assigned his blame
Upon mechanics. Worry not, for fill
The void did offense do to win the game!
Ten games at home, kicked off with four against
Those Cubs we faced last week. A set intense!
To bring these injuries unto their end
Is what I wish upon the pitching staff.
It seems no arm will get around the bend
As Kenta left with a strained hip. In half
Is my heart now. He probably has to go
Upon the DL. How well he has done!
The rest of the game had a choppy flow
Since we could not tame Arrieta’s gun.
Just one run from a JT single. Poor
The bats were. But that’s just another game
In this long season. There is plenty more
And that loss was expected. Not much shame!
A red hot Ross will toss the ball tonight
And to put in cheesesteak such a bite!
At last, the Dodgers really make me smile!
For they have finally achieved a win
After six horrid games that incurred bile
Inside my soul. I hope this will begin
A run of victory that is unmatched.
And what an epic day for sir JT
By driving in five runs! He’s so detached
From how this team has done. No misery
For Kenta, who was stellar going eight
With not a run allowed. Control was on!
Though series lost, this game will carry weight
Into the next, which is in Washington.
If rain remains away, we’ll get to play
A game or three. For clear skies, I will pray.
The disappointment snowballs more each day
And I fear that one day, it will be big
Enough to tower skylines like L.A.
With shadows that would spark fear on a brig.
Though I enjoyed the homers that came late
From Yasiel and Cody, I just wish
They could have been hit quicker. Would be great
To help unlucky Alex spear the fish.
I smiled at JT’s return, and Logan
Too! But even they could barely help
This team so cold and well below zero.
We could be bad. I fear of what I yelp.
A victory is needed. Can’t we win
With Buehler on the hill? Sad violin.
In His World Series debut, Kershaw choked
The bats of Houston like a boa’s bind!
As Sandy watched apprentice, joy evoked
Whenever strike three rang throughout the mind!
A speedy game we witnessed! Not a lot
Of offense all around, but on the first
Pitch of the game for Keuchel, Taylor thought
It would be nice to take him deep! That burst
Was mirrored in the sixth when game was tied
And JT knocked in two with one real high!
Then Morrow dealt a 1-2-3 of pride,
And Kenley did his job of saying “Bye!”
Now the first game’s been won, but there are three
More needed. Rich, take hill and bend the knee!
WE’VE CLINCHED OUR TICKET TO THE PROMISED LAND,
WHERE WE WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN IT ALL!
WITH LOVE AND BOMBS FROM KIKÉ (ONE WAS GRAND),
IT SEEMS LIKE WE WILL WIN THE WAR OF FALL!
KERSHAW LOOKED GREAT, AND WITH A GIANT SCORE
TO PROP HIS DOMINANCE, THERE WAS NO FEAR!
SO AFTER SIX, THE BULLPEN DID THE CHORE
WITH GRACE UNMATCHED; THIS SERIES, THEY HAVE SMEARED!
SO SERIES MVP WAS SHARED BY TWO:
THE DOUBLE-T TEAM, SIRS CHRIS AND JT!
SO NOW WE WAIT TO SEE EXACTLY WHO
WE FACE. HOUSTON OR NEW YORK? WHO’LL IT BE?
WHICHEVER TEAM, THEY’LL HAVE TO FACE THE ACE.
WHO ELSE WOULD START BUT KERSHAW IN THIS PLACE?
