VIDEO: Addison Russell hits walk-off home run to beat Brewers
The Chicago Cubs fell behind early in the game and were staring at their fifth loss in their last six games.
Then they rallied.
Trailing 4-2 to the Milwaukee Brewers late, the Cubs scored one run in the eighth to cut the lead to 4-3. After Jon Jay got on with one out, Miguel Montero followed suite with a single to give runners on the corners with one out.
That’s when the magic happened. Reigning NL MVP Kris Bryant tied the game on a single off Neftali Perez, giving the Cubs new life.
Two batters later, Addison Russell won it for the Cubs with this blast:
