The Chicago Cubs needed only a hit from Addison Russell to complete a come-from-behind win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Addison Russell delivered that hit — and then some.

With two outs and men on second and third, Russell stepped in to face Neftali Feliz. Down 2-0 in the count, Feliz had to come in and challenge Russell, which he did. Some 377 feet later, the ball landed in the left field bleachers at Wrigley Field, giving the Cubs a 7-4 win.

The Cubs trailed by 4-1 after six innings and 4-2 through seven. An RBI single from Russell in the eighth cut the deficit to 4-3. A ninth inning single from Kris Bryant tied it, and two hitters later, Russell’s second home run of the season ended the game in emphatic fashion.
