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

20 April 2017

The Cubs are scheduled to send right-hander Kyle Hendricks (1-1, 5.73 ERA) out for his third start of the season in the Wednesday series finale.

The rally overshadowed another big night for the Brewers' offense.

Thames had two doubles and three hits but ended his franchise record-tying homer streak at five games. Travis Shaw was 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBIs. Brian Duensing gave up a run in his 1.1 innings of work, but Grimm, Edwards, Rondon and Davis were all lights out. Russell's homer came on Feliz's 33rd pitch of the game, which is the most pitches he'd thrown in a game in almost a year, since April 24, 2016.

Feliz came back out for the ninth inning in an attempt to nail down the four-out save. "Our guys kept throwing strikes and they foul off". Vargas (3-0) scattered four hits over seven innings with nine strikeouts and no walks. Pittsburgh tagged him for three hits and four earned runs without recording a home run. Yonder Alonso and Chad Pinder also homered for the A's.

The surging Rockies had lost seven straight games at Dodger Stadium since they last won there last season June 8.

The winning run for the Cubs came on a wild pitch in the seventh by Milwaukee newcomer Jared Hughes. La Stella was batting 1-for-4 with an RBI double and two walks over six games. Kyle Schwarber, Miguel Montero and Albert Almora Jr. each chipped in 2 RBI, with Schwarber going 1 for 4 with a home run.

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. All three Royals traveled to Chicago on Sunday after a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Angels.

Indians 11, Twins 4: Jose Ramirez and Edwin Encarnacion each hit two-run homers, and Francisco Lindor added a two-run triple as Cleveland routed Minnesota. Jared Hughes gave up a run on 2 hits to take the loss, falling to 0-2 this season with his first blown save of the year.

Padres 1, Diamondbacks 0 • Jhoulys Chacin pitched eight scoreless innings and Erick Aybar hit a homer to lift host San Diego. Chase Headley and Aaron Hicks also went deep to give NY a season high four home runs.
