MLB: It’s nutty! Ty France sends the ball to France and gives victory to Mariners at the end

The heroic deeds of the last inning did not stay in Houston, Texas. Behind the second home run of Ty France who tied the game in the top of the ninth inning in as many days and Jake Bauers’ two-run single, the Seattle Mariners scored three runs in the ninth to defeat the Athletics, 5-3, Monday, at the Oakland Coliseum.

On Sunday, the Mariners stunned the Astros at Minute Maid Park behind France’s exploits. The first baseman, who now has four home runs in his last five games, hit the game-tying home run off All-Star closer Ryan Pressly to push the game into additional innings. Here is the video of Monday’s HR:

At 11, France once again played hero with a lead single, propelling the Mariners to victory from behind.

With the victory, the Mariners are now 68-58 and three games behind the second AL wild-card spot, currently held by the Red Sox. Seattle is also now just two games behind Oakland in second place in the AL West.

In turn, Atléticos’ relief squandered a lead in the eighth inning or later for the third straight game at home: closer Lou Trivino missed for the second time in three nights in the ninth and has now blown four saves.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
