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 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 34 – Padres 3 Cubs 11

Cubs sweep the Padres

Eleven runs – no homers!

The six doubles helped

Double our pleasure

Theriot, Dempster, Johnson

Scales, Miles, Scales (again)

Game 6 – Cubs 8 Brewers 5

Johnson robs Fielder

Marmol pitches like an ace

Cubs take the series

Kevin Gregg sure tried

To blow the game in the ninth

But got a big “K”
