Inspired by this, this, and this...

Two Out Rally

Hurling bullet-fire he,
Billy Wagner came to see
if he could get the Redlegs out
and two he did, that dirty lout.

Ninety-eight his speed was clocked,
surely 5-4 was locked
in the ninth the Reds last chance
bases empty I watch askance.

But the Mighty Wagner threw
the count went full, a walk was drew
another pass, a small dink hit
and hope arrived, the bases lit.

Shootout at the green corral
oh-and-two on a strike and foul,
a single stroke to separate
the sheeps from goats at this late date.

Ninety-nine came a speeding train
but Phillips swung his fragile cane
and crack! the ball went in the field
and vict'ry for the Reds was sealed.

Fine Art Friday   (via Summa Mamas)



This mosaic shows the great "Big Red Machine" of the 1970s. If that ain't fine art then I don't know what is!
