Now Playing: The Summer Game
What happened to the past four years? The time since my last Blog. Nobody knows. Maybe it was baseball. I know, it's nuts, but there it is. A daily limerick for all Philadelphia Phillies games. The least successful team in Major League Baseball history; closing in on 10,000 losses in the 100 or so year histroy of the team. The symbol of failure. My team.
Jon Lieber pitched all nine;
his fastball and slider were fine.
He struck out eleven;
a complete game shutout: baseball heaven.
None too soon for this stalwart to shine.
Saturday, June 9, 2007. Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri.
Philadelphia - 4, Kansas City - 0.
WP - Lieber (3-4, LP - Menche (3-6)
