Cubs, Javier Baez’s Walk-Off Make Regional Cover of Sports Illustrated
The Cubs incredible week ended with the team’s first walk-off win of the season at Wrigley Field. Javier Baez supplied the game-winner in the 13th inning as the Cubs completed the improbable sweep over the Nationals and a perfect 7-0 week against the Pirates and Nationals.
There have been several unforgettable wins at Wrigley over the past year and a half. And Sunday’s victory over the Nationals with Baez hitting the blast in extra innings quickly became one of the best moments of what has been a tremendous start to the Cubs 2016 season.
Sports Illustrated immortalized Baez’s walk-off with its phenomenal regional cover.
