Javy Baez Puts One Onto Waveland (On a Bounce!) with His 14th Homer of the Season

Chicago Cubs

Javy Baez struck out three times tonight, but the crowd was still chanting his name when he stepped up to the plate with a runner on and 1 out in the bottom of the 7th inning. And because he lives for that moment, he delivered.

Watch him hit his 14th home run of the season onto Waveland … on a bounce, but whatever:

That was 111 MPH off the bat and traveled 384 feet in a hurry. It also brought Baez up to a 118 wRC+ for the season, 18% better than the league average hitter, and put the Cubs up by 5 runs late at Wrigley Field.
