Addison Russell hits walk-off homer against the Brewers

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Craig Counsell is running out of superlatives to apply to first baseman Eric Thames. "We just have to figure out the best way to deploy it". "And he's on his way to that".

Brewers: RHP Zach Davies (0-2, 8.79) will open a four-game home set for the Brewers against St. Louis, who will start RHP Carlos Martinez (0-2, 3.57).

"The middle of our lineup is carrying our offense", Counsell said.

Some other items that sold, according to Rovell: Second base from Game 5 ($43,025), the on-deck circles used by the Cubs in Games 1, 2, 6 and 7 ($40,575).

The Yankees' Luis Severino allowed four runs (three earned) and three hits in a career-high eight innings.

"The (first) pitch I threw to Thames was a pretty good pitch, he's hot right now and got a double", Lackey said. His reaction is priceless, and it's an awesome father-son moment that you rarely get to see these days.

Toronto's Ezequiel Carrera belted a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth off Matt Barnes to make it 8-7. Both are really important to us this season.

Six figures, apparently, if we're talking about first base from the Chicago Cubs' Game 7 victory over the Cleveland Indians last fall.

The lead grew to 5-0 in the third inning when Shaw and Santana each drove in a run.

The Brewers led 3-0 after the first inning.

Thames doubled into the right field corner with one out and Braun followed with a two-run home run - his fifth of the year.

The Cubs lost for a fourth straight time, their worst stretch since a five-game skid from July 5-9 last season. Almora is batting.391/.440/.609 in 11 games this season while contributing excellent defense in center field. He allowed a solo home run to Albert Almora, the second inning, but that was his only blemish of the day. He tied the Milwaukee record held by Jeromy Burnitz (1997) with home runs in five consecutive games.
