Watch: Javy Báez Opens Weekend with Oppo Home Run
Anthony Rizzo, the greatest leadoff hitter of all time, walked to start the inning, and Javy Báez came to the plate with Rizzo at second and two outs. El Mago got the job done with a RISP and then some. He launched an opposite field home run, his 16th of the season, to give the Cubs a 2-0 lead over St. Louis.
