Addison Russell hit a walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning off Neftali Feliz to cap a four-run rally and lift the Cubs to a 7-4 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field. No player on the team has more than two home runs through the first 13 games of the season, while no regular batter is hitting over.290 so far.

Bandy made it 3-0 in the second with a lead-off solo home run to left, his fourth. Almora is batting.391/.440/.609 in 11 games this season while contributing excellent defense in center field. The home-run ball is something Feliz is susceptible to. He earned a World Series championship ring with the 2016 Cubs. On Tuesday, the Cubs came back from down 5-0 to win, and on Wednesday they found themselves down 4-1 at one point. All three are now with the Kansas City Royals and had an off day.
