Baez crushes his 4th homer in 2 days

Baez crushes his 4th homer in 2 days

The Chicago Cubs will go for a series win over the Pittsburgh Pirates when the two teams meet in Thursday's finale at Wrigley Field. The Pirates skipper said that the guy (Baez) hits four home runs in two games so that gives you the right to flip your bat 20 feet into the air on a pop up, like saying you should have connected for your fifth homer.

Williams allowed one run and four hits through six innings, striking out five and walking one.

Baez told reporters that he plays hard every day, following his team's 6-1 loss to Pittsburgh and added that he did not think anyone played the game harder than he does. "I'm trying to forget about the launch angle and all this stuff that messes with my mind. I would bet that men went over and talked to him, because I believe they've got a group there that speaks truth to power".

The Pirates came into the game with an 8-2 record, good for first place in the National League Central. He advanced on Jason Heyward's bouncer to first and then swiped third with pinch-hitter Tommy La Stella at the plate. People that talk about me, they can save it.

When Hendricks threw the first pitch at 1:22 p.m., it was a sunny 74 degrees and the wind was blowing out to right at Wrigley.

His game has been a pretty good of late, too.

Baez said he chatted with Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli about the incident during the course of Thursday's game, but said the veteran backstop went about it "in a great way" and the two players wound up joking with each other about Baez's at-bats. "No one plays this game harder than me". By the fourth inning, the temperature dropped to 57 and the wind was blowing in. After Wilson walked Josh Bell and Corey Dickerson, Cervelli smacked his second homer this season.

"That's actually a proud moment", Maddon said. "It got cold very quickly". 23-year old Bryan Reynolds is playing for Double-A affiliate Altoona. Maddon held Almora out of the lineup on Thursday not because of illness, but because of matchups and dispersing playing time among his outfielders. Following two high-scoring games, will the under hit when Trevor Williams takes on Kyle Hendricks in the pitching matchup? But for the third year in a row, Hendricks struggled in his third game of the season. After being roughed up for five runs in 4 1/3 innings in his Cubs debut at Miami on March 31, Darvish allowed just one run and struck out nine in six innings at Milwaukee last Saturday.
