The Cubs have played some extremely sloppy baseball the last few games, with plenty of fans starting to worry about the reigning World Series Champs (first time I’ve written that in a sentence).
And true to faith, the Cubs found themselves down once again to the Brewers, only scoring three runs the first eight innings of the game. But that all changed when Addison Russell came to the plate with two outs, runners on 2nd and 3rd and came up with another classic Addi Russell moment.
The kid is just too clutch.

The 23-year-old shortstop absolutely obliterated a three-run shot to walk-off against the Brewers. He got all of the pitch too, connecting for an 109 mph exit velocity.

The monster shot clinched the series over the Brewers and helped improve the Cubs record to 8-7 on the season, they travel to Cincinnati next to start a nine game road trip that includes the Pirates and Red Sox.
