Holy cow! The first place Cubs came back from a 3-1 deficit to beat Cleveland (sound familiar?) 6-5 at Wrigley on Tuesday night. Yu Darvish threw another quality start (7 IP, 3 ER, 7K) and Cameron Maybin's HBP walked it off in the bottom of the ninth.

Although Darvish was dealing, it was El Mago who stole the show. Baez homered in the 2nd and scored all the way from first base on a steal attempt of second as the throw went in to center. Javy didn't look back and slid into home. Then he put some heat on a relay throw to Rizzo to turn a crucial double play in the top of the ninth to keep the game tied.

The series wraps up tomorrow before the Twins head to Chicago for a weekend set. 49 games down, 11 to go.
