Baez homers twice for Cubs in victory
MESA, Ariz. – Javier Baez homered twice, including a two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth that gave the Cubs a 7-5 win over Japan on Friday.
The shortstop prospect who played in the high Class A Florida State League last season finished 2 for 4 with a walk and three runs. He homered in the seventh and then followed up with the winning hit off Takeru Imamura.
Sho Nakata, who had three hits, and Hayato Sakamoto each hit two-run home runs as the two-time World Baseball Classic champions prepared for the event’s semifinals in San Francisco.
