Cubs rookie Addison Russell delivers walk-off hit Tuesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Cubs rookie Addison Russell delivered the clutch hit Tuesday against the Nationals, as he lifted Chicago to a 3-2 win with a game-ending RBI double in the ninth inning. Russell lined a 1-0 pitch off Matt Grace beyond center fielder Denard Span's reach for his third hit of the game.

"My whole mindset going into that at-bat is to just keep the same approach, stay calm, see the pitch that you want to swing at and hit it," Russell said, per MLB.com. "Don't try to do too much.

"It was a great feeling. I was really into seeing the ball good tonight and things just happened. I think that tonight was a good night."

Russell is the third-youngest player in the majors. He is not lighting the world on fire offensively, but he has hit safely in 23 of 31 games since his promotion from the minors. He is also having his struggles in the field as he makes the transition from shortstop to second base.

Still, manager Joe Maddon seems to be happy with the rookie's progression.

"It's not easy to fight through that at that age with that lack of experience," Maddon said. "His mental toughness is really incredible how he's fought through all these difficult moments himself. He's not used to failing.

"So understand where a lot of guys at that age are, developmentally. They're not here. They're somewhere else, without the spotlight on them, learning their craft. And he's done it on the fly here and he's doing a great job."

"I think he aggravated it in Cleveland [on Saturday] a little bit," Reds manager Bryan Price said, per MLB.com. "Until you see it on the field, you're not going to hear much about it from Brandon. He's not going to alert anyone about it. He just plans to go out there and play, and then when it becomes noticeable, it becomes one of those situations where we take the lead to make sure he's getting adequate treatment and he's not going to continue to aggravate it.

"Today's one of those days where we'll spend a lot more time on treatment than we probably do on ground balls and batting practice."
