Addison Russell blasts walk-off HR to beat Brewers

Addison Russell blasts walk-off HR to beat Brewers

Brewers reliever Carlos Torres walked Anthony Rizzo and Russell in the sixth and Rizzo came home to cut the margin to 4-2 when Willson Contreras' two-out single bounced down the first-base line. Reddick tripled in the first inning, doubled in the sixth and struck out swinging in his only other at-bat, finishing 3-for-4.

The Brewers staked Jimmy Nelson to a 5-0 lead in the third, but the right-hander couldn't make it hold, allowing seven runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings.

The Cardinals have dominated their NL Central rivals of late, winning 61 of the last 91 meetings with the Brewers and taking the season series in each of the last four seasons.

"Just going for a pole", said Russell, who slammed a walk-off three-run homer with one out in the ninth to lift the Chicago Cubs to a 7-4 victory in a Wrigley Field series finale.

In an effort to make sure that the Cub's generosity isn't abused, the team has reportedly asked everyone in the organization to sign an agreement saying they'd sell the rings back to the Cubs for $1, instead of selling them anywhere else for a profit. He allowed a solo home run to Albert Almora, Jr.in the second inning, but that was his only blemish of the day. So far this season, the mighty Chicago offense had been out-homered 18-12 before Russell's blast in the ninth inning.

Philadelphia pulled even in the eighth, but Yoenis Cespedes singled leading off the bottom half and Bruce connected again, this time against Edubray Ramos (0-2). His first start of the season was at Milwaukee, and he tossed six innings of four-run ball for an 11-6 win on April 8.

Gettleman: McCaffrey, Fournette both fit Panthers
Asked if McCaffrey is among the "half dozen" three-down backs he said he sees in this draft, Gettleman replied: "He can run it". McGinn also wrote that No. 3 back Christian McCaffrey scored a 21, Tennessee's Alvin Kamara a 24 and Oklahoma's Joe Mixon a 12.

Dylan Covey (0-1) got knocked around in his second major league start, allowing eight runs, 10 hits and three homers over five innings (see full recap).

Hundley doubled into the left field corner with two outs to set up Panik's game-winning hit off Scott Alexander (0-1). Barney singled with one out, and Ezequiel Carrera had a two-out RBI single.

The Rays trailed 7-5 after six innings but rallied for a run in the seventh and then got to closer Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth. Who are these Cubs one road trip, one homestand and 15 games into their title defense? Baltimore led 2-0 after Machado's sacrifice fly in the fifth. Miguel Cabrera hit his 449th career home run, moving into a tie for 38th all-time with Jeff Bagwell and Vladimir Guerrero. Szczur hit leadoff and played right field in his second start of the season. The past two days provide for that, giving them a moment to breathe.
