Javier Baez Jersey said

Schwarber also was impressed Chicago Cubs Jerseys by Baez's effort.

"I give Javy a lot Addison Russell Jersey of credit," Schwarber Anthony Rizzo Jersey Javier Baez Jersey said. "He was busting butt down the line on a ball that didn't kick away that far. I don't think the catcher realized that. By the time [Lopez] turned around to throw, [Baez] was already there. Kudos to Javy there for running it out. That's a baseball play right there. It's big."

Baez didn't stop. He stole second, and Jason Heyward was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Avila then lined a single to right, driving in Zobrist and Baez for the win.

"You know they can't walk you there, and they have to at least come in the zone," Avila said. "You could tell [Osuna] was struggling throwing his slider for a strike. I figured I'd get something hard, whether it was his cutter or fastball. I was just trying to make hard contact."

Baez did one more thing that won't show up in the boxscore. His secondary lead allowed him to score on Avila's hit.

"This is the nuance of the game," Maddon said. "During Spring Training baserunning meetings, you say that you're being a great teammate when you get a good secondary lead."

It wasn't all good for Avila. The Blue Jays had a runner at first with one out in the 10th, and he moved up on an errant throw by Avila to Koji Uehara, who was trying to signal to the catcher that he wanted a new baseball. Avila couldn't hold up his throw.

"It's not horrible," Maddon said.

No, but Jose Bautista was then intentionally walked, and one out later, Pillar hit an RBI single to go ahead, 4-3.

Somehow, the Cubs rallied for a sweep of the Blue Jays.

"I do love that we don't quit," Maddon said. "We talk about it all the time."
