Addison Russell had a three-run walk-off homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give the Cubs a 7-4 win on Wednesday afternoon against the Brewers.

The home run had an exit velocity of 109 MPH and went 375 feet into the bleachers. Russell is the youngest Cubs player to hit a walk-off home run since Anthony Rizzo in 2012 according to CSN's Christopher Kamka.


Another surprising statistic is that Russell hit the home run off of a 96.9 MPH pitch which was the hardest pitch he's ever hit for a home run according to statcast.
