by Michael X. Ferraro
With Kershaw slinging filthiness
and Scully narrating the scene,
The no-hit ingredients were
all in place at Chavez Ravine.
Fifteen Rockies went down on strikes
(one reaching by errant throw).
Rojas at third veered into left
to keep Clayton’s hit count to NO.
In the end, the lopsided box
score tells only a part of the tale
Of the night that 40,000
bellowed, while 9 could only flail.
