Things didn't get off to a great start in Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers as the Brewers took a 3-0 in the first two innings.
It was Russell's first career walk-off home run as he took Feliz deep for 370 feet with two runners on base. "You're seeing signs, really good signs, with the bullpen guys". That shot put a jolt through frigid Yankee Stadium, where fans hid beneath big coats and later umbrellas when a light rain began in the eighth inning.
"It's not like we're playing poorly", manager Joe Maddon said.
Brett Anderson pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed six runs and eight hits. He was removed from the game for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning. Brian Duensing gave up a run in his 1.1 innings of work, but Grimm, Edwards, Rondon and Davis were all lights out. Miami's Edinson Volquez (0-2) barely made it through three innings, giving up four runs, five hits and four walks. Eric Thames, Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw are all on fire, with Shaw being the one doing to most damage on Tuesday night. Schwarber looks healthy enough to play every day, and players like Albert Almora Jr. and Jon Jay have shown to be pretty clutch with the stick through the team's first 13 games. Pittsburgh tagged him for three hits and four earned runs without recording a home run.

John Lackey didn't exactly storm into the interview room after a 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, turning to a Cubs media relations official as he sat down at the table and saying: "It beats working at Sears, huh?"
