On Tuesday night, the Chicago Cubs took on the Los Angeles Dodgers in a matchup of National League behemoths.

The Cubs jumped out to an early lead, piling up six runs in the first two innings.

As if the 6-0 score wasn't embarrassing enough, Cubs star infielder Javy Baez pulled off one of the most ridiculous juke moves to reach first base.

Baez hit a blooper to first base, which was fielded cleanly by the first baseman.

However, Baez showed his ability to make the defender miss en route to reaching base.

This one has to be seen to be believed.

Check it out.

Was Baez out of the base path during the juke?

The umpire ruled no, and Baez reached base safely. Although the Cubs didn't score in the bottom of the second inning after Baez's single, the team still holds a sizable lead.

After five innings of play, the Cubs hold a 6-1 lead.
