DUDE! Baez and Heyward EACH Hit Three-Run Homers in the 6th, All With Two Outs (VIDEOS)

Chicago Cubs

Setting the stage: the Cubs trailed 3-0 in the 6th inning, having hit the ball hard tonight, but having nothing to show for it. Cody Bellinger had just homered to knock Cole Hamels out of the game, and it kinda felt like you could see the story shaping up. The Cubs got a runner on base in the bottom of the 6th, but there were quickly two outs, so …

NO SO! Because the Cubs have Javy Baez. And with two outs, two strikes, and two on, he is very happy to play game-tying hero:

Another view of Javy Baez watching this one fly, telling it so sweetly to get out:

But that wasn’t all! Because, still with two outs in the sixth, just three batters later, Jason Heyward decided to rip his own three-run homer to give the Cubs the lead:

Heyward, as he’s been doing all year, knocked the snot out of that one. I love it.
