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:

Wizards, I tell you.
