Russell's HR caps 4-run 9th as Cubs top Brewers 7-4”

The Milwaukee Brewers and the Chicago Cubs do battle on Wednesday afternoon to close out their 3-game set at Wrigley Field.

Thankfully, shortstop Addison Russell was able to save the Cubs from another loss with a three-run walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth. Travis Shaw was 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs.

The Brewers led 3-0 after the first inning. He retired Kyle Schwarber to lead off the frame, but then Jon Jay walked and Miguel Montero hit a single to put runners on the corners.

Jay, 30, who is 7-for-18 this season, has been careful about when to give advice to his fellow Miami native Almora, 23, who delivered a pinch-hit two-run single during a four-run sixth and is batting.421.

"It's not like we're playing poorly", manager Joe Maddon said.

TORONTO - Andrew Benintendi's two-out double in the eighth inning provided the decisive run as Boston held on. Miami's Edinson Volquez (0-2) barely made it through three innings, giving up four runs, five hits and four walks. He threw 88 pitches (57 strikes) and appears ready to be activated from the 10-day DL. "We just have to figure out the best way to deploy it". "He's ready to go", Counsell said.

A night after breaking up a potential no-hitter with a ninth-inning double, Haniger scored in the first inning, had a two-run single in the second and clanged a two-run double off the wall in deep center field in the fourth.

The Milwaukee Brewers got off to a hot start, but couldn't keep their momentum going, dropping their second game in a series with the Chicago Cubs 9-7 on Tuesday.

SAN DIEGO - Shelby Miller allowed four hits over 7 1/3 innings and Yasmany Tomas hit a three-run homer as Arizona cruised past San Diego. Without his bat in the lineup, the Cubs probably do not win this game.
