Giving the Chicago Cubs their first lead of the day against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday, Cubs second baseman Addison Russell lined a 2-run homer to the opposite field in the bottom of the fourth. The dinger made the score 3-2 in favor of the Cubs and came on a fastball thrown by Reds starter Tyler Mahle.

Leaving the bat at 104 miles per hour, the 2-run bomb, which plated catcher Victor Caratini, soared 414 feet out to right-center. Russell now has two home runs and four RBI this season.
