Game 48 – Dodgers 0 Cubs 7

Great start by Dempster

Bradley, Johnson, Fontenot

Brought their bats today

Have you noticed that

Since Cotts left for Iowa

Cubs are three-and-one

Game 45 – Pirates 2 Cubs 5

Second straight Cubs win

This one a direct result

Of sending Cotts down

After Reed’s home run

Blanco and Fox provide bats

For some insurance

In a one run game

That ninth inning might not have

Turned out quite the same

Game 44 – Pirates 1 Cubs 6

Cubs losing streak ends

Because rain ended the game

Before Cotts could pitch

— or —

Cubs losing streak ends

Offense provides the diff’rence

Six runs in five frames

Game 17 – Cubs 10 Cardinals 3

Cubs get some offense

Survive appearance by Cotts

Avoid sweep v. Cards

Helluva birthday

“Talk Like Shakespeare Day”

Out, out you damned Cotts!

Wherefore art thou, Cubs offense?

That is the question
