MILWAUKEE — Showing off his fielding prowess and flashing the leather, Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez made a great diving stop that led to a force play at second base. The defensive feat came in the second inning of the Cubs' clash with the Milwaukee Brewers at American Family Field on Tuesday.
Baez laid out and gloved a grounder hit by catcher Manny Pina before flipping the baseball out of his glove to second baseman Eric Sogard. Sogard was able to remain on the bag while catching the baseball, resulting in left fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. getting outed at second base via the fielder's choice. The tremendous web gem made for yet another memorable "El Mago" moment.
