Báez, bullpen lead streaking Cubs over Padres 6-5

CHICAGO (AP) Javier Baez tagged the San Diego Padres in all sorts of ways.

The Chicago Cubs star hit a go-ahead, three-run homer, then made a nifty play with his glove in the ninth inning Saturday to help preserve a 6-5 victory.

The game started out as a slugfest in sweltering conditions at Wrigley Field before the wind suddenly shifted in the seventh, the temperature dropped and the pitchers took command.
