opening the day

seventh inning

an outstanding instance of paying attention to the situation
coming to the stretch
players are lured west by money
sent to first base, is a bit of drama
the pitcher’s arm action
was craggy,
automatic blood bank teller machine ...


a gaff where a reserve clause
gives you a berth
down on the farm

a previous hitter
when distracting the catcher, across
his statistical profile
bluffs throwing to
the bleeding or stunned
cutoff man—

showing the hitter a photograph
should always advance
if the fans razz
one of the favorites, or
if no one batted home so many runs as
reports on the game
the bunt
seemed embarrassingly easy
