Rookie Javier Baez hit two more home runs and drove in four runs Thursday, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 6-2 win over the Colorado Rockies and their first series win at Coors Field in 10 years.
The 21-year-old became the first MLB player with three homers in his first three games since Joe Cunningham for the Cardinals in 1954.
