CHICAGO — Manning the hot corner with the Chicago Cubs battling the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday, Cubs sensation Javier Baez corralled a hard-hit bouncer near the foul line while playing third base and gunned an impressive throw across the diamond to record a sensational out.

Saving an extra-base hit, Baez went to the ground in order to make a backhanded scoop of a chopper hit by Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun. Baez then fired a dart to Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who made a catch on the far side of the bag to out Braun.
