Baez went 2-for-4 with two walks, a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 14-6 win over the Nationals. Baez was a bit overshadowed by his teammates in this one, as the Cubs mashed six home runs in the rout, including three from Kris Bryant. The 26-year-old star still posted a solid line, and with Chicago's lineup humming recently, Baez should continue to post outstanding counting stats on a regular basis.
Baez went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Reds. The Cubs had just four hits as a team, with Baez accounting for half of them. The 26-year-old just keeps hitting, as he now has a .326 average and .971 OPS to go along with 11 home runs, 29 RBI and 32 runs scored through 41 games.
Baez went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a walk Sunday in the Cubs' 4-1 win over the Brewers. Baez's fifth-inning extra-base knock drove home Kris Bryant and broke a 1-1 stalemate. After reaching base three times in the series finale, Baez's OPS now sits at a robust .987 for the season, more than 100 points better than his mark from his runner-up MVP season in 2018. It bears mentioning, however, that Baez has benefited from a .402 BABIP (career .342 mark), suggesting his .323/.360/.627 slash line should be viewed with a fair dose of skepticism.
Baez went 2-for-4 with a tie-breaking solo homer in the Cubs' 6-5 win over the Cardinals on Saturday. Leading off the bottom of the eighth inning in a tie game, Baez launched a homer to right field off John Brebbia that provided the winning run. The 26-year-old shortstop leads the Cubs with 11 home runs and 26 RBI and is sporting a .318/.353/.659 slash line for the season.
Baez went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and two runs scored in Saturday's 9-1 win over the Diamondbacks. Baez continued his torrid pace to begin the season, as he's now batting .333 with a 1.045 OPS and 23 runs scored. The Cubs' lineup can be awfully dynamic, and that should only help Baez produce elite counting stats the rest of the year.
