WATCH: Addison Russell goes yard, puts Cubs up 2-0 over Reds


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — An inning after Chicago Cubs power hitter Kris Bryant slugged his 20th home run of the season on Wednesday, Cubs second baseman Addison Russell drilled the Cubs' 20th dinger of the last 10 games. Russell took Cincinnati Reds starter Sonny Gray deep at Wrigley Field on a curveball.

The 389-foot jack to left came with two outs in the bottom of the second, and it provided the Cubs with a 2-0 lead over the Reds. The homer left Russell's bat at 102 miles per hour, and it sported a launch angle of 22 degrees. Russell now has six round-trippers and 16 RBI to his name this year.
