Javy Baez cuts down run in Game 5 with great play

Trea Turner out

Javy Baez’s shining defense came into play once again for the Chicago Cubs.

Baez cut down a run during Game 5 of the NLDS on Thursday with a nice fielding play at second. Bryce Harper was up with one out and Trea Turner on third in a 1-0 game. Harper grounded the ball to Baez, who fielded the ball and threw home perfectly to get Turner:

That preserved a 1-0 lead for the Cubs. They ended up surrendering a big inning in the second anyhow, but when you can save a run in a playoff game with your defense, that’s a big deal.
