Biographers disagree about Leopold Mozart’s quality as a father, but they all agree on one thing: he was convinced that his son, Wolfgang Amadeus, was nothing less than proof of deity. Convinced that his son was “a miracle that God allowed to be born in Salzburg”, Leopold took his six-year-old son on a grueling tour of Europe. And although the profit motive was certainly taken into account in the decision as well, Grove’s authoritative dictionary says his main motive was evangelism: “The recognition of this ‘miracle’ must have struck Leopold with the power of divine revelation and felt his responsibility to be not only for the father and the teacher but for the sender as well.” Leopold seems to think that he is obligated to his god to share the miracle of Wolfgang’s talent with the world.
Which brings me to Ty France. Seattle Mariners are stuck in a far corner of the country, often playing games that start after most of the country’s population goes to bed. It is difficult for a team or its players to gain attention. Sometimes, with supernatural talent like Griffey, Ichiro, or Julio, they can hack anyway. But since it took a fierce campaign from his fans to get Edgar into the Hall of Fame, the team and his backers put up a ridiculous uphill battle to get Ty France into this year’s All-Star Game. But before today’s game, it happened.
The rest of the world will watch Ty France’s talent prodigy in Los Angeles on Tuesday. And in the fifth game today, he showed what that talent looks like, shooting a 432-foot ball.
Zoot colors! Today, it’s Ty France’s world, and we all live in it.
But Ty France is just one of the Mariners’ many miracles, many of which were on display during this incredible streak of victories, which ran this afternoon. Take Chris Flexen, for example. With the match over on Tuesday, Flex had to play Game One with a double-header for makeup on Wednesday, which meant he had to take a short break today. Knowing this, I spent some time last night thinking about how to write about the end of the winning streak. what i like.
Flex threw an impressive 76 today, but had trouble in the third. In the top half of the inning, Marcus Semien and Corey Seager turned a double play, but they must have been feeding Tide Pods as a snack before setting off because they ran all the way to the dugout before being told they were only the first two outs of the inning. But when the bottom half of the inning finally came, it became clear why they so desperately wanted to start, with Semien homering and Seager following it with one song. This resulted in a flex hook, but 3.2 innings of a one-off ball run from the worst player on the team working on a short respite against a decent attack is a miracle in my book.
The Bulls finished the game brilliantly, including a particularly bad sixth inning from Ben Murphy, where he crossed out three and earned three of his five slides.
The word “filth” is thrown around a lot in relation to sliders these days. But it’s a good description of a stadium like this pic.twitter.com/H8CulPaZGc

If behind this stadium was nothing divine, I don’t know what to do. And the world is finally watching.
Defense played its part, too, with Winker’s diving catch for the first time in the afternoon, and several balls being carried within the confines of Globe Life Field. The no-fly zone has expanded.
Today, Ty France is an all-star, but one day, he’ll be Cal Raleigh, too. Although he’s usually off on Sunday after playing Friday and Saturday, Scott knew the attack needed him badly. Indeed, he has hit the ball at over 100 mph three times today, including the decisive blow of the game.
The extra effort earned Cal a Beef Boy Sun Hat for notable contribution, his third, making him the first-half leader with three. Mazel Tov, a great dump truck. look at me Sun Hat record book In the first half, it turns out that when it comes to erasing Ty France, I’m part of the problem. So let me retroactively correct that and award France the prize for the April 24 match against the Royals. After all, he went three-for-five with a picnic and a run at home, ranking him seventh in the RBI in the series, and inspired this all-time model from Slurvey in the comments: “France and its executive royals name the most famous duo.”
And can we take a moment to be happy that the extra coverage that the team’s winning streak has earned has earned Sam Haggerty even more love? Swaggy Ham has been the quiet hero of the series. Well, the home run into the garden was pretty loud. But then he continued stealing the third base in the 10th game yesterday with a three-pointer today. Once again, his primary performance was the most impressive, as evidenced by reading Julio Rodriguez’s flyball.
Note the frequency in Just The right moment to make sure he can get back to the start if the ball is caught before the nitrous runs so hard that it nearly passed Fraser. It should be noted that Julio’s seventh-stroke double RBI double made the game so elusive at 6-1, because of course this game had a huge significance for Julio. Of course I did. Like Fernando Tates Jr. and motorcycling, he can’t help himself. This came on top of his lead in the game solo and reaching base by taking a knockout for the second time in the series, as the Rangers clearly try to give Cory Seeger the edge at tomorrow’s Home Run Derby. But you can’t press Julio.
After Julio made the match out of reach, the Mariners won their 14th straight spot. This miracle should be enough for them to take a meaningful share of the national baseball media debate during the All-Star break. Did the sailors finally get some attention? How divine.
