VIDEO: Javier Baez and Jose Quintana Extend Cubs' Lead Behind El Mago's 2-Run HR


The wind is blowing out at Wrigley today. Jason Heyward went deep to lead off the game, but after the Milwaukee Brewers tied it up, the Cubs offense led by Javier Baez responded in a big way. The All-Star shortstop received a 2-2 fastball center cut and he blasted a two-run shot that over the left field fence. Take a look:

The offensive onslaught continued and it came from a surprising source.

Left-handed pitcher Jose Quintana has been doing his thing on the mound, but he helped himself out by lining a two-out single to right field to make it a 4-1 ballgame.

When a pitcher helps himself at the plate, it's usually a good sign. Cubs fans should already be prepping to fly the W.
