30 June 2018: An offense with no powers cannot fight.

An offense with no powers cannot fight
Back when the pitcher isn’t cold.
As Kenta dealt and had a damn good bite
Into the mountains, offense wasn’t gold,
Not even in the slightest ’til the six
When Kiké blasted off to get the first
Of crew’s three hits the whole game. Many kicks
Impacting with the windpipe. ‘Tis the worst
To see your team swing noodles wet and dumb.
Despite a month of fire, not a great
Last note to end on. Better times will come –
That’s what I do believe; no more bad freight!
‘Tis afternoon delight that I desire,
So may Ross rock the Rox and run the dryer!

25 June 2018: In all submission and humility!

In all submission and humility
Did Kenta put the Cubs in! Over seven
Frames were they kept scoreless! Far from spree
Was either team, but in the, ’twas heaven
Given to the crew in blue. Give thanks
To Kiké’s early shot, and then to Chris,
Whose late home run insured the future ranks
And let us send Chicago one cold kiss.
Some chances to extend the lead were squashed
By defense strong from Cubs. Hey, check the board,
For we’re now in a playoff spot! How washed
That stretch of stink is now! Keep that ignored.
Tonight a start for Ross, who wasn’t great
Last time. But now, he’s got a cleaner slate.

24 June 2018: A fest of homers held by bluest bats!

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!

16 June 2018: To Madison’s disgrace, how Kiké rocked!

To Madison’s disgrace, how Kiké rocked
Him once again! That power’s on repeat.
Almost each time they face, the ball is shocked
When it ends up in stands shot like a skeet.
Sir Kemp also delivered with a smack
To left that made Commander Dave emit
A smile on the air. How Matt’s attacked
In each at bat like fighting in the pit!
An outing good from Wood was needed bad
And he achieved that goal! The pen and bats
Took care of all the other deeds that had
To be in order to win in combat!
Smell sweep on the horizon, up to Ferg
To give his all and take over the burgh.

15 June 2018: Ross tosses like a warrior again!

Ross tosses like a warrior again!
Consistency has been his attribute
With many K’s and little walks, no pain
Exists whenever he’s the one to boot.
Not that much offense was required for
The victory. Attacks from bats of Matt
And Kiké, plus a run off an error
That brought in Yaz after Puig’s double spat
Upon the field like seagulls on the sand!
Last night, the bullpen seemed on top of all.
That April shot of Kenley has been banned
As he’s been saving games as if a wall!
Our first look at the maddest bum this year
And Alex Wood will try to bring some fear.

13 June 2018: Last night, I hear, a wild game was won.

Last night, I hear, a wild game was won.
How unconventional was the event!
What some would call a brawl ensued when wondrous
Kemp tried to truck catcher to prevent
His being out, but ’tis against the rules.
So shoving started, but no punches thrown.
To mound, Kenta returned and used his tools
Quite well! Nothing too special in the zone.
The match went into extras. Gentle grace
From Kiké tapping home plate won the scrum!
Another win to close in on first place,
But will Kemp be suspended? Would be dumb
To do so, but we’ll see. Another time
For relaxation; this news is sublime!

10 June 2018: Trust placed in Ross, and ends achieved quite well!

Trust placed in Ross, and ends achieved quite well!
United with an offense at their best
Contrasting game two’s bats that burned in hell;
Home runs from Logan, Max, and Kiké blessed
That hexagonal scoreboard out in right!
Another dominating day for Strip
Whose quality is of the tallest height
And makes it quick for us to get a grip.
Above .500 once again. To keep
That status is what I would wish to do.
Keep jumping, hitting blocks, get leads real steep
Without stress. How we’re getting closer to
First place again! I hope that spot is next.
Some Texans come tomorrow. Go be hexed!
