WATCH: Javy Baez's 'El Mago' play set to Benny Hill music


by - Senior Editor -

'El Mago' was doing 'El Mago' things in the Cubs' 5-3 win over the Pirates on Thursday.

Javy Baez hit a grounder to Pittsburgh Pirates' third baseman Erik Gonzalez that should have ended the top of the third inning.

Instead, it resulted in a run scored by Willson Contreras and the half-inning continuing with a crazy play that is really indescribable.

Social media was mesmerized by the wild play, and several hilarious blooper videos have been made.

Check out this hilarious video of Baez's play set to Benny Hill music, courtesy of Michael Cerami of Bleacher Nation:
