Despite not having many hits this postseason, it’s been quite clear that Addison Russell is feeling good at the plate. He’s showing confidence, swinging at good pitches, hitting them with authority, and not getting himself out.
It seemed like it was only a matter of time before something really good like this happened:

Rich Hill has been pretty good tonight, but he missed that spot badly, and Russell yanked it.
It was ripped hard, but it was a low liner, so it’s great that Russell hit it where he did.
Addison Russell yanked that homer to just the right spot – didn't have a ton of distance. pic.twitter.com/M3SLDSsP1Z

Now let’s see if the bats can add on, and/or if the pitching can make this hold up.
