Bullpen Blues

The umpire squeezes Hamels in the fourth 
and ruins 54 degrees of sunshine as DeShields
cracks open a grand salami and the once daunting lead 
evaporates. Never fear though Cubs faithful, Fergie Jenkins is in the booth, and though we cannot harness his 267 complete games (30 in 1971 alone), the offense 
sparks a rally, and recaptures hope for a fleeting moment,
only to see it come to a crashing end first with the crack
of Joey Gallo’s bat, and then a free pass home for a wild walk off.
