El Mago does it again.

The Brewers letting their guard down, Cubs shortstop Javy Báez scored by stealing home.

So technically this isn’t a steal, just some heads up base running.

With the catcher in the infield to talk to the pitcher, no one was at home to catch the ball and stop Báez.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell came out to argue that the ball was dead, but was consequently ejected.
