The Stellar Throws of Texas

by Hilary Barta

The defense of Texas was tight
From the catcher, and later from right
.     From third to the plate
.     was a distance too great
and Cabrera was out like a light

Man of the Eleventh Hour

Jim Leland put Beltre on first
Of the options that proved to be worst
.     The dreamed double-play
.     was singled away
And by Nelson, Detroit was submersed
