WATCH: Baez fakes out Dodgers with crazy double play


by - Senior Editor -

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez let the Pederson's soft liner to drop to get a force out at second and doubled up Adrian Gonzalez as he was headed to third base.

The double play ended the top of the six inning for reliever Carl Edwards Jr. on the mound. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts argued after the inning that an infield fly rule should have been called.

Maddon talked about Baez's savvy and baseball intelligence in the pregame on Sunday.

"It's so hard to teach how quickly his mind works," Maddon said.

Baez was happy about the double play after the inning.
