Highly touted Chicago Cubs youngsters Jorge Soler, Javier Baez and Kris Bryant hit back-to-back-to-back home runs off of Cleveland Indians starter Trevor Bauer in the fourth inning of a Cactus League game on Tuesday.

Soler got it started with a towering shot just inside the left field foul pole and Baez followed by crushing a pitch to almost the same spot. Bryant changed things up a bit, taking Bauer about 400 feet to the opposite field for his second homer of the spring.

It had been a while since the Cubs accomplished that feat in the regular season:

That's right: the Cubs, who entered the day 0-5 in Cactus League play, were still losing despite the hoopla. Sure, spring training doesn't matter, but is there anything more Cubs than that?

As for the constant in each of the home runs? Bauer seems to have a pretty good attitude about the whole thing:

What a good sport.
