Addison Russell Capped a Four-Run Cubs Inning With This Two-Run Bomb

Chicago Cubs News

It’d been a long time.

A really long time.

The Cubs finally scored a run. Four of them, in fact!


In the fourth inning tonight, against youngster Julio Urias, the Cubs strung together some hits – starting with a crafty bunt from Ben Zobrist – scored a couple runs, and then Addison Russell broke out the big lumber with a 392 foot homer (102mph off the bat) to right center.

You can watch the video here at, or in this tweet:

It’s been a tough postseason for Russell, among several other Cubs, so I’m sure that had to feel good. Russell actually gave the ball a good ride in his first at bat, too, flying out to the warning track in left.
