On his second home run of the night, Javier Baez incorporated a bat flip, and he blew a bubble

Javier Báez was exceptional during the Cubs' 3-2 win over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series presented by Camping World on Wednesday.
The Cubs infielder launched his first home run of the night in the bottom of the second inning on a 1-1 pitch off Alex Wood. And it was déjà vu all over again in the bottom of the fifth when Baez hit a second homer to left field to extend the lead to 3-1. But this time, there was more swagger behind the dinger.

Sure, he added a bat flip into the performance, but it was a bubble he blew after he made contact that really caught our eye.

That's impressive. And it reminds us that Baez really loves his gum.

He wasn't done yet, though. Baez ran out of the dugout after rounding the bases for a well-deserved curtain call.

Tune in to Game 5 of the NLCS presented by Camping World on Thursday, 8 p.m. ET on TBS.
