The Windy City Has become the House of Murph Game with Rice, always
An Ankiel homer Spoils a perfect storm of Rotten Mets playing
He pitches, he hits He inspires Marlon Byrd! He is: Matt Harvey
A Valdespin bunt Ignites competent offense For resilient Niese
Though Marcum threw well Wild pitch gives Cards the lead Ankiel’s blast for naught
Gee struggles again Card score runs three at a time Byrd homer for naught
Ankiel arrives, but His glove is late, Rice too. Not Holliday’s bat, though!
Base denies Duda A Harvey start is wasted The offense sputters
Not a Banner Day For Niese, offense, Valdy’s arm Just for Andrew Brown
If Mets free agents Tend to turn out like Marcum Better that they’re broke
First Ike delivers, Then Baxter, once again, makes The closer’s job moot
De Aza strikes first No fault of Hefner’s, but fans Want Wheeler, and soon
Nice going, Baxter Your heroics this time can’t Get Harvey a win
A Wright bolt ties it Tejada, Murph hits earn lead Familia saves!
Thanks to Valdespin And Wright’s near-cycle, Mets don’t Get swept by… Marlins
