Chicago Cubs star Javier Báez ― aka El Mago, or The Magician ― pulled off some base-running voodoo during his team’s 5-3 victory over the Pirates on Thursday.

Baez’s slick moves ― with the help of some extremely poor fielding by the hapless Pirates infield ― not only led to a run for the Cubs but also left him at second base on what should’ve been a routine infield groundout to end the inning:

“It really is a magic act,” manager David Ross said after the game, according to ESPN. “He just creates havoc.”
