Cubs' Addison Russell blasts two-out walk-off homer to sink Brewers

Cubs' Addison Russell blasts two-out walk-off homer to sink Brewers

Kris Bryant hit a game-tying single and Addison Russell hit a three-run homer with two out to win it. Travis Shaw and Jett Bandy each hit home runs in the first two innings off Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks.

All the Cubs needed in that situation was a base hit, but Russell came through with a no-doubt-about-it three-run homer into a very strong wind blowing out off Neftali Feliz. "As they get more successful innings - which they shall - their confidence will come on because they're really good". Reliever Jared Hughes (1-1) took the loss.

Justin Grimm (1-0) worked a scoreless sixth inning, and Carl Edwards and Hector Rondon followed with one shutout inning apiece.

White Sox: 3B Todd Frazier is still recovering from a stomach illness and did not play, although manager Rick Renteria said Frazier was available.

Athletics 4, Rangers 2: Andrew Triggs, who hasn't given up an earned run in 17 2/3 innings this season, helped Oakland snap a four-game slide. Miami's Edinson Volquez (0-2) barely made it through three innings, giving up four runs, five hits and four walks.

Athletics 9, Rangers 1 • Khris Davis hit his seventh homer of the season to key Oakland's romp at home. "(Ryan) Braun and Thames are doing a heck of a job.

San Jose Sharks vs. Edmonton Oilers - 4/16/17 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
Edmonton goalie Cam Talbot stopped all 23 shots he faced after blanking the Sharks on 16 shots in Game 2 on Friday. Thornton, who eclipsed the 1,000-assist mark for his career this season, isn't the only Shark on the mend.

Rod Carew's transplanted heart, kidney donated from ex-Ravens TE Konrad Reuland
Konrad was filling out a driver's license renewal form when he asked his mom whether he should become an organ donor. He spent a year with a left ventricular assist device, or LVAD, in his chest handling the work of his damaged heart.

Russian Federation accuses United States of unlawful Syria raid as Tillerson visits
Ambassador Nikki Haley is warning that the United States will not allow any further use of chemical weapons "to go unanswered". Rather, they argue, any US-Russia deal over Syria is going to have to take Moscow's interests squarely into account.

That chased Nelson, and then Jay greeted Hughes with a triple off the base of the wall in right-center to score Almora and tie it.

Jose Abreu had three hits, including an RBI double in the fourth for Chicago. It could be the last start for a while for Milone with the projected return of right-hander Matt Garza (right groin strain) from the disabled list later this week.

The Chicago Cubs haven't gotten off to a great start this season as they attempt to win back-to-back World Series titles.

Chicago (8-7) won its second straight - both comeback victories - while Milwaukee (8-8) has lost two in a row.

Milwaukee could have easily swept their three-game set against Chicago at Wrigley, and arguably should have swept. Quintana (0-3, 6.75) is scheduled to start against Corey Kluber (1-1, 6.38).
