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.

And that's why they call him #AddisonMuscle.

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.
