It's a three run game and you take the field
But it's the other team who fails to yield
A lead-off walk is the way you start
This outing is not for the weak of heart
Behind in the count, you can't throw strikes
The fans grow restless, they do not like
You dance around the outside edge
It's almost like you've made a pledge
To allow the opponents their every wish
Runner after runner comes across the dish
Until it's over, you've given up the lead
You couldn't get 3 outs, couldn't do the deed
A wild celebration at home plate
But it's not for you, you struggle late
The loss is yours, you blew the game
The BS in the box score is your claim to fame.
