Another surprising statistic is that Russell hit the home run off of a 96.9 miles per hour pitch which was the hardest pitch he's ever hit for a home run according to statcast. Anderson pitched a ideal second inning but gave up two more runs in the third. Down 2-0 in the count, Feliz had to come in and challenge Russell, which he did.

Chicago trailed 4-1 before Willson Contreras' RBI single in the sixth off Carlos Torres.

Addison Russell hit a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning off Neftali Feliz to cap a four-run rally and lift the Cubs to a 7-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field. Miami's Edinson Volquez (0-2) barely made it through three innings, giving up four runs, five hits and four walks.

Kevin Pillar had three hits for the second straight game and stole two bases as the Blue Jays won for the third time this season and improved to 2-6 on their homestand. Russell added a run-scoring single in the eighth to cut the Cubs' deficit to one run.

Nationals 14, Braves 4 • Bryce Harper had two homers, including a grand slam, among his four hits as visiting Washington rolled.

Corey Knebel, the Brewers' fourth pitcher of the day, got into a jam in the eighth with none out when he issued a lead-off walk to Bryant, gave up a base hit to Rizzo followed by a bloop hit to right by Russell that scored Bryant to make it a 4-3 game.
