Javier Baez electrifies Wrigley crowd with steal of home (Video)


Chicago Cubs second baseman Javier Baez is having a stellar October, so it should come as no surprise that his magic continued on Saturday night as the NLCS got underway.

In the bottom of the second inning, Baez laced an RBI double to center off of Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Kenta Maeda. After a wild pitch moved him to third, Baez did what no other Cub has done since 1907 — he stole home.

Check out the play that not only put the Cubs up 3-0, but completely electrified the Wrigley Field crowd:

Baez’s steal of home was not only the first for the Cubs in nearly 110 years, it was just the second in franchise postseason history. Jimmy Slagle had the previous steal of home in Game 4 of the 1907 World Series.

In the bottom of the 6th inning, the Cubs maintain a 3-1 lead.
