W: Freddy Garcia (1-2)

Highlights: Paul Byrd would have gone eight shutout innings in the National League.

I once had a pitch
Or should I say, it once had me
It hasn’t much zoom
But isn’t it good, missing the wood?

They asked me to play
And they asked if the pitch had some hair
So I pitched off the mound
And they hit a few flares

I sat on a bench, biding my time
Earning a dime
I pitched for just two
And then they said
It’s time for bed

They told me to work
In the video room to get past these gaffes
I told them I would
And crawled off to avoid the media’s wrath

And when I awoke I was alone
This Byrd had flown
Can I put out the fire?
It would be good, if I just could
