Fil-Am Addison Russell homers off Dodgers' Urias

Julio Urias faced 184 batters at Dodger Stadium without ceding a homer. The 185th, Fil-Am Addison Russell, changed that.

Los Angeles, CA - Addison Russell homered in the 4th inning of the NLCS Game 4 with a man on 3rd and one out. The Filipino American shortstop drilled the 2-0 pitch 401 feet to centerfield after going hitless in his last 17 at bats to extend the Cubs' lead to 4-0.  The Chicago Cubs went on to win 10-2. See NLCS Game 4 box score here.

As Addison Russell tweeted back in 2012 (when he was drafted by the Oakland Athletics and played for the Arizona League Athletics), he is half Black, half Filipino.
