El Mago is undoubtedly making his case as a serious MVP candidate with his homer last night in the Cubs 5-1 win. The homer was a 420-foot blast with a legit scream to his teammates to fire them for the stretch run.

However, it wasn't all fun and games in the first two at-bats with Javy Baez as he went to the bathroom and accidentally smashed up some stuff before his last game heroics with the longball.

“It wasn’t on purpose," he told The Athletic's Patrick Mooney. "I actually slammed the door, and I threw my bat. The bat was broken, and I threw it to the wall, and it bounced, and it hit the mirror. If it was on purpose, that whole sink was going to be gone. It’s all right. It worked. I hit a home run."

So there you go. Baez didn't mean to do it as his bat and the door did all the work.

Baez is batting .294 with 32 homers and NL-leading 105 RBI this season. He could be the first Cubs player to lead the league in RBI since Sammy Sosa (160) in 2001.
