On Sunday, Baez suffered a right heel bruise that swelled and prevented him from starting the next two games.
But Baez said he watched Tuesday’s game unfold with the Cubs losing a 1-0 lead and started getting dressed and ready to play.
“I told (Pedro Strop) I was going to end the game,” Baez said. “He didn’t believe me. (Jon) Lester said ‘you’re not supposed to be out there,’ and I said we’re going to play a long game and it was tight.”
