Addison Russell hits first career walk-off home run

Addison Russell hits first career walk-off home run

"Um, can I get hit by a foul ball?" general manager Jed Hoyer said Tuesday, laughing during batting practice before a 9-7 comeback win over the Milwaukee Brewers. They tied the game with a run in the eighth inning on a double by Aaron Altherr, a ground out by Odubel Herrera and two-out hit by Michael Saunders.

Kevin Pillar had three hits for the second straight game and stole two bases as the Blue Jays won for the third time this season and improved to 2-6 on their homestand.

Anthony Rizzo grounded out, and Russell followed with a drive into the left-field bleachers on a 2-0 count. His three-run shot walked it off for the Cubs giving them a 7-4 victory.

It was Russell's first career walk-off home run as he took Feliz deep for 370 feet with two runners on base. Those last two plate appearances have come in the first three innings of Wednesday night's game against the Nationals.

Kershaw (3-1) allowed two runs on five hits.

Chicago Cubs outfielders Kyle Schwarber and Jason Heyward are getting the day off Wednesday against the Milwaukee Brewers.

It's unclear how much the Ricketts family paid for the rings - of which there are different tiers - but according to sports ring dealer Tim Robins, "If a midlevel player were to be the first to sell his 2016 Cubs championship ring, I think it could go for at least $80,000".

Miami's Ichiro Suzuki provided a bit of nostalgia with a solo home run on the first pitch of the ninth inning, in possibly his final at-bat at Safeco Field. He also has a tendency to step up and come up with big hits in the late innings. Following the Wednesday game, the Cubs have an off day before heading on a nine-game road trip that takes them to Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Boston. Rain delayed the start by 55 minutes. Last season, the Cubs had five walk-off wins.

Faulty Parking Brakes Lead Tesla to Recall 53000 Vehicles
In November 2015 , Tesla recalled 90,000 Model S cars because of a single report of a seat belt not being properly connected. Of the 53,000 vehicles involved in the recall, Tesla expects less than 5% of those to be affected by the defective part.

His heroics capped a four-run ninth that came on the heels of a single run in the eighth as the Cubs rallied from a 4-2 deficit.

Padres starter Jarred Cosart (0-1) retired the first 10 Diamondbacks he faced before departing the game before the fourth inning was over with a strained right hamstring muscle. Heyward has hit safely in 12 of 13 games, including in each of the past seven contests.

The Padres' Jhoulys Chacin (2-2) allowed three hits and a walk with five strikeouts in eight innings.

Brett Cecil bailed Leake out of a seventh-inning jam by inducing a 6-4-3 double play from pinch hitter Jose Osuna, who was making his major league debut.
