The Cubs' game-ending glove-flip-to-barehanded-grab-and-scoop double play was art
The Cubs beat the Pirates on Saturday at Wrigley Field by a 10-4 score -- not exactly the type of game you'd think would be able to end dramatically, given the six-run difference. However, Javier Baez, Addison Russell and Anthony Rizzo teamed up for an impossibly good and very smooth double play to seal the deal:

Are they wizards? From Baez's flying catch and glove-flip to Russell's barehanded grab, spin and throw and Rizzo's scoop at first, this required three perfect performances, and the trio of Cubs nailed it.
Wizards, I tell you.
