top of the fourth and our lead-off hitter makes it to first base.
and here we go, it's the worst-case
scenario for any opposing pitcher because he got a reckon
that the first chance he gets, he's gonna try to steal second,
which he does. so for the first time during the mission,
we've got nobody out and a man in scoring position.
the next batter flies out to right, but yo word,
that's still only one out and a runner on third.
so then the number 3 hitter steps up to the conventional talk,
showin' where he'll hit, but draws the intentional walk.
it's an old maneuver they made 'cause trouble may follow
unless they get the double play from the clean-up hitter and that's me.
the infielder's set up a double play depth when they're ready,
but i smack a line drive into left-center for a double, bringing two across,
which just leaves it up to me to do the damage in the clean-up spot,
'cause now the score was 3 to 2.
the score remained the same through five past hits to pretense.
we kept it close with a dazzling display of defense.
we had to pull the starting pitcher, the one that was left handed.
the story of the sixth inning was base runners left stranded
and bullpen activity. but still the job is gettin' it done
after a perfectly executed hit and run
and what may later prove to be the ultimate game-winning catch.
we got a tie game going into the seventh inning stretch.
