Cubs 7, Brewers 4: Russell hits walk-off shot

Feliz (0-2) took the loss.

Martinez leads the National League with 24 strikeouts but has been a victim of St. Louis' punchless offense, which is tied for last in the National League in runs scored (48), last in hits (93) and total bases (161) and second-to-last in batting average (.210).

The Cubs were able to score in the eighth inning to bring it close. Miller (2-1) issued two walks with five strikeouts, allowing two hits through the first six innings while retiring the Padres in order four times. It was his first since June 2, 2013, when he was playing for the Colorado Rockies.

The Cubs, though, worked their way back, and it was 4-4 when Addison Russell stepped in with two on and two out in the bottom of the ninth.

Haniger led the charge. I'm not laying this much juice with the Cubs though, so I'll take a shot with the Cubs on the run line to add more value.

Cubs starter John Lackey (1-2) pitched six innings, allowing four runs on seven hits. "He's the best right fielder in the game". DP - Milwaukee 1 (Villar, Arcia, Thames). Tough in the beginning against (Brewers starting pitcher Tommy) Milone; he threw really well today. I look at it as the Ricketts [ownership] were so unbelievably generous in the cost of the ring and the number they gave out, I think it's totally approp.

"That is part of the game", said Albert Almora Jr., who hit his first home run of the season in the second inning.

The league is doing its due diligence as Thames was subjected to a random drug test earlier this week. Reddick struck out in the third.

RHP Matt Garza (strained right groin) allowed five runs in 5 2/3 innings in a rehab start for Class A Wisconsin on Monday night.

Vargas (3-0) struck out nine, one shy of his career high, walked none and allowed four hits in seven innings.

Addison Russell hit a three-run homer off Neftali Feliz that capped a four-run ninth inning and lifted the Chicago Cubs over the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 on Wednesday.

Ezequiel Carrera drove in Barney from second after he advanced to second on a single by Kevin Pillar. Chase Headley and Aaron Hicks also went deep to give NY a season high four home runs.

With the Yankees already leading 7-1, Judge got hold of a 2-0 curveball from Dylan Covey.

"It's unique that Ryan is not getting the attention after a five-home run start after the first couple weeks of the season, but he's happy with it, I guarantee it", Counsell said.

ROYALS 2, GIANTS 0: Jason Vargas dazzled for the third straight start, the Royals finally scored off Giants ace Madison Bumgarner and Kansas City won at home to split their two-game series.

Even though the optics hadn't been good, Cubs relievers came into the game with an ERA of 3.83, and they lowered that to 3.53 Wednesday to go along with a WHIP of 1.20.
