Cubs' Javier Baez: Swipes 18th base

Baez went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs and a steal to help the Cubs to a 5-4 victory over San Diego on Friday.

A day after launching his 18th homer of the season, Baez continued his excellent first half with two more hits and a stolen base in this win over the Padres. It's been an all-around dynamic showing for the infielder so far in 2018, as this steal was Baez's 18th, which is already six more of his previous career high. As it stands, he's a legitimate threat to post a 30-30 season.
