Ben Revere's Day

Listen, my children, and you shall hear

Of the mid-day game of Ben Revere,

The series was even in Cleveland Town,

In this 61st game for the Twins this year.

Masterson pitched as we entered the third,

The score tied at 0; no drumming was heard,

Luke Hughes singled, and took second base,

But to hope for a run seemed a little absurd.

But up came Revere with 2 outs in the inning,

It wouldn’t surprise you to know he was grinning,

A single to center and Hughes crossed the plate,

Now the score was 1-0 and the Twins were winning.

Carl Pavano was our pitcher that day,

Through 5 innings straight he kept Cleveland at bay,

But one lonely run seemed a very slim lead,

There was too much baseball yet to play.

So the top of the 6th, Revere singled again,

Next he stole second, went to third, and then…

Justin Morneau hit a double to right,

And scoring once more (You guessed it) Ben!

Now Carl came in with us leading by 2,

Grady Sizemore homered as he likes to do,

Though the Twins still led by 2 runs to 1,

That ain’t much with our shaky bullpen crew!

But lo, and behold, no more runs score,

Carl pitched 7, and Mijares one more,

Then Capps came in for a 9th inning close,

We all hoped he would swiftly slam the door.

One batter out, then 2…almost done,

But Capps served one up – Jack Hannahan home run!

His 5th blown save, and the score was tied at 2,

I don’t know about you, but that wasn’t fun!

The top of the 10th, and what did we see?

A Drew Butera double to Michael Brantley,

Then it was up to Ben, and he singled him in,

And the Twins lead the game with a run count of 3!

And then it was up to Phil Dumatrait,

To finish the game and put Cleveland away,

Which he did and earned his first ever save.

And the drum was silenced on Ben Revere’s Day!
