Cubs’ Javier Baez continues to make stealing home his thing

Cubs shortstop Javier Baez has been flashing his glove on a consistent basis since taking over for injured Addison Ru sell. But it was his speed that invigorated fans Wednesday against the Pirates.Baez took advantage of an opportunity inthe second inning by stealing home. It was the first time a Cubs player stole home in a regular season game since Starlin Castro accomplished the feat in 2010. Baez also stole home during the NLCS last year.Javier Baez is such a beast! Stole home! Healy (@TheHealy6) August 31, 2017The Cubs are still in a tough fight for a playoff spot, but some of their young players like Baez have stepped up in August.Rookie second baseman Ian Happ crushed his 20th home run of the season inthe third inning, and Kris Bryant entered Wednesday’s game hitting .323 in August.While Baez thrilled fans Wednesday, the Cubs still need to maintain a higher level of consistency to win the crowded NL Central.
