Game 57 – Cubs 1 Astros 2

Same score, diff’rent day

Cubs offense struggles again

Pitching has been great

Two games in a row

The only Cubs scoring comes

From solo home runs

Game 55 – Cubs 7 Astros 1

Fontenot’s birthday

He goes 4-for-5 tonight

Includes  a home run

Lilly shines again

Gives up just 3 hits, no runs

And hits a triple

Only Cubs starter

Who did not reach base tonight

Was Milton Bradley

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

Rain out

My first live rain out

And I was among the last

To leave Wrigley Field
