A perfect ten! Oh what a streak we’re on!
Achieved by sweeping team named after peaks.
And crazy was the game; control was gone!
So many wild pitches from the meeks.
It’s just another day for Cody B,
Departing the yard twice – ’twas no big deal.
His domination’s such a thrill to see,
Along with a face that makes ladies squeal.
McCarthy got the yips – we wish him well,
The bullpen did a fine job after him.
And Kenley hit a double – what the hell?!
For Colorado, that must have been grim.
The rivalry connected by the 5
Begins today! Rich Hill vs. Angels – live!
Another sweep? How swell! And filled with bombs
The series was – this game no different,
With JT, Kiké, Joc all going long!
And Joc’s put us in front, how excellent!
Though Ryu did alright, Chris Hatcher failed
Right out the gate to keep our one-run lead.
No worries as the rest just cruised and sailed,
And Kenley came to grow the planted seed.
The Snakes have helped us keep our place in first,
Preventing Rocks from gaining any ground!
But next we face the latter – far from worst.
To be an intense series, this is bound.
Our second ace will kick it off: Sir Wood’s
In charge of making known we’re more than good.
‘Twas almost blown, but Kiké saved the day
When lead was trimmed to one – he gave his all!
As Votto struck the ball much ways away,
He ran back, made the catch upon the wall!
The offense buff again, Especially
Sir Turner, who drove in three with a dong,
And Logan who rocked like it’s ’83!
They all helped sing the sweeper’s sweetest song!
Maeda did real well, but as for pen…
Reliability was not their word.
Too many runs took us fans out of zen,
But Kenley saved us with his closing curd!
At last, we’re home to take on New York’s team;
They’ll face our ace and that will make us scream!
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.
Upon the floor, I found the hair of bears
While sweeping! Though our ace did not do well,
Our offense, which used to hit lefties scarce,
Created, for Jon Lester, pitcher’s hell!
Four shots by Dodger Blue that breached the wall,
And three from Maddon’s crew to up the count.
But Puig’s one went the furthest of them all
And helped us in our journey to dismount
The Rockies from division’s highest point.
Another key this game was our bullpen,
Who did not let a hit – effort conjoint!
Then Kenley came to shut down in the end.
Missouri morning waits for them to show
Today as Rich is eager to unload.
Osaka’s fighter keeps the turnaround
Continuing by almost shutting out
The Jolly Roger; swept them off the ground
And keeps our Boys in an offensive sprout!
Young Cody struck the ball with might, again,
Delivering this one the other way!
Old Chase, who’s struggled, finally broke the chain
And with his bat and glove, had a great day!
Sad news before the match: Sir Toles is gone
For the remainder, due to his lost knee.
Until the next spring training, he shan’t spawn,
So prayers for him and strong recovery.
Our next four games played on a mile high,
As we attempt to take first in this try.
The first win for Ryu since fall fourteen!
And though he threw in less than six, he shined,
Allowing just one run; ‘twas very clean.
I shan’t forget his K’s, striking out nine.
The offense did their deeds without a scratch:
A 3-run Tolesy dinger soared the lead!
Sir Turner clearly is in no rough patch,
His BA over four-hundred exceeds
Our expectations! Though the end was rough
As Dayton let the Phillies pick up two,
So California Love was warm enough
To save the game and sweep them off their shoe.
The worst of West come into town tonight,
And Kershaw starts, so we shall be alright.
