Game 63 – Indians 7 Cubs 8

Cubs come back again

Second straight game that calls for

multiple haiku

Behind seven zip

It looked hopeless once again

But the Cubs fought back

Two solo home runs

Fifth frame Reed, Lee in the sixth

Then came inning eight

Four hits,  a walk and

A Cleveland error later

Cubs score four – down one

Ninth inning home run

Lee’s second of today’s game

Sends it to extras

Tenth inning, two outs

Fonzie singles, steals and scores

On Ryan’s single

The Cardiac Cubs

Have returned to Wrigley Field

And it feels so good

Game 62 – White Sox 5 Cubs 6

Because I was there

I think today’s game deserves

Several haiku

Not much excitement

‘Til the bottom of the eighth

Two on and two out

Then, back-to-back jacks

First Derrek Lee’s three run shot

Next, Geo Soto

Suddenly, we’re tied

And the White Sox fans are shocked

Thought they had it won

Bottom of the ninth

Reed singles, moves to second

Still there with two outs

Then, Soriano

Bloops a single to right, and

Wrigley is rockin’

Game 35 – Astros 4 Cubs 5

Fonzie wins the game

With a single in the ninth

Scales scores from second

‘Twas only needed

Because Gregg blew four run lead

In top of the ninth

Another great start

From Randy Wells is wasted

Thanks to Gregg’s poor job

Cubs fans want to see

Lou choose a different closer

I would pick Marmol

Game 33 – Padres 4 Cubs 6

A rain shortened game

But we saw four Cubs home runs

Well worth getting wet

Alfonso – lead off

Theriot – not once, but twice

Soto – season’s first
