The Cubs bested the wildcard-leading San Francisco Giants in a close one at Wrigley last night after a go-ahead single by Addison Russell, who’s been playing like a man possessed these last couple of games. He also made an impossible diving grab to save the sweep against the Pirates, running nearly half the length of a football field to chase down a bloop fly ball. He keeps playing like this, and they’ll have to name a street in Wrigleyville for him. These Giants are in town through the weekend and will provide the banner matchup of Arrieta vs Bumgarner on Saturday. Where are you watching this heavyweight battle?
