WILLSONNNNNNN Contreras Clears the Bases, and Javy Baez is El Mago (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs

Despite making Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda WORK in the first inning, and despite loading the bases with just one out, it looked like the Cubs might let the righty off the hook when Kyle Schwarber struck out and Willson Contreras went down 0-2.

… but then Willy saved the day:

And how about Javy Baez coming all the way around from first to score on a double to left that didn’t even make it to the corner! I literally said out loud “how the hell did he score from first on that,” but of course, I immediately know the answer.

El Mago.
