coors fieldIt’s Javier Baez Round Two, and I’m not sure what he can do to top last night’s excitement short of rocking a handful of extra-base hits, and maybe taking a walk.

Not only is it Baez’s second game tonight, it’s also another edition of Jake Arrieta! The Cubs’ newfound ace will face the team he just pitched (well) against last week, which isn’t always an easy task. Doing it at Coors Field is even harder.

The Cubs are up one Kyuji Fujikawa and down one Nate Schierholtz for tonight’s game.
