Hit a ball
Out for his fifth straight day. No Sox
Bat has got six straight days of park-vacating knocks.
Also hit a ball out, which
Put things such that his squad won.
No outs–not a pitch (bar 10 and a half prior innings’ worth)–prior to winning run.
Notching 10 against Rays.
Is not a coward.
His hit wound up a big inning
So his squad wound up winning.
Had to start pitching, as Placido and Ryan
Both got hit by a pitch
On back-to-back plays, that inning. At that point, you must switch.
Had to go mano-a-mano
With his opposing moundsman. Carl didn’t notch a hit
But as his squad had 8 in as many at-bats, it was cool with it.
Was part of a ninth-inning croak.
His squad was up by four
But couldn’t shut Washington’s door.
I forgot to say
This until Thursday.
