Holy smokes, San Francisco. Batkid saved the day again.

You may know him as Miles Scott, a dynamic 5-year-old boy who recently darted around San Francisco to save Gotham through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He is a leukemia patient who played hero for a day and rescued damsel in distress, freed the Giants’ mascot from the Penguin and led a rally of nearly 20,000 citizens who cheered him on at City Hall.

Batkid also has the ability to save the 49ers from a loss.

San Francisco faced the Seattle Seahawks at home on Sunday. This was a Seahawks team that recently dismantled the New Orleans Saints, 34-7, on Monday Night Football. Sure, San Francisco could have relied upon quarterback Colin Kaepernick to pull off a win.

But this was a job for the Batkid.

Scott watched Sunday's game on San Francisco's sidelines, and he saw the 49ers pull off a 19-17 victory. It was an important win to keep San Francisco in the NFC playoff race. The victory also kept the 49ers in contention for the NFC West title.

It appears there is nothing this little kid cannot do.

Thank you, Batkid, for inspiring all of us.
