Not a comeback win

A relaxing afternoon

Happy Father’s Day

It’s been a long time …

First time in my life

Cubs win three straight walk-off games

Last time? ’46

Game 64 – Indians 5 Cubs 6

It happens again

Cubs come back to win the game

On final at bat

Timely hits, combined

With aggressive base running

Blanco stands on third

And then Kerry Wood

Throws it in the dirt – wild pitch

Blanco scores – Cubs win!

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 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
