CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs second baseman Addison Russell tied the Washington Nationals at one run apiece on Sunday. Hitting a solo home run out to left field, Russell made the score 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth at Wrigley Field.
The 2-out bomb, which came on a changeup from Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg, landed in the basket atop the wall after sailing 367 feet. Marking Russell's seventh homer of the season, the dinger left the bat at 96 miles per hour and 30 degrees.
