Free Baseball

For the first time this season
sees batting averages drop
like falling mercury
behind a setting sun in the west
as six Cubbies go one for seven, or less.

But Chatwood's star shines bright
and his bat awakens in the desert night,
sending him trotting home
after Almora singles, and Zobrist
removes the extra base monkey from his back
after Bryant proves his taste for yard bird
has officially been acquired.

A Monday off is a solid reward,
as the Cubs Fly the W all the way
to Seattle where Hamels will activate
his pursuit of win number four,
as the Cubs close out the trip
with a third series win
on the West Coast clip.
