Russell's Walkoff Homer Defeats Brewers

Addison Russell hits a walk-off three run homer to give the Chicago Cubs a 7-4 victory against the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday. After a 55 minute rain delay at the start, the Crew took an early 3-0 lead and was still leading by one in the bottom of the ninth when Kris Bryant hit an R-B-I single to tie the game before Russell hit a fastball to left center to end it. Travis Shaw and Jett Bandy homered to give Milwaukee its early lead, and Neftali Feliz was going for a four out save but took the loss to drop to 0-2. Cubs’ closer Wade Davis got the win, and Albert Almora Jr. also homered as Chicago won the final two contests of their three game set with the Brewers, breaking a four game losing streak. Milwaukee closed out a 6-3 road trip, and will open a four game home series tonight against the Saint Louis Cardinals.
