See Chicago Cubs Shortstop Destroy a Cardinals Fan's Nachos

Cubs' magic number still 1; Dodgers, Yanks, Astros clinch home-field advantage

While chasing down a foul ball in the bottom of the second, Cubs shortstop Addison Russell flew into the crowd. He went hard for the ball, and inadvertently kicked a full plate of nachos right out of the hands of a Cardinals fan. First, they eliminated their rivals the St. Louis Cardinals with a 10-2 win.

Russell emerged from the dugout a few innings later with a plate of nachos and delivered it to the fan.

Not everyone was happy about the amount of attention Nacho Man got, however, including Cubs pitcher Jon Lester, who only half-jokingly attributed America's fascination with its cheesy new hero to the state of our society. He entered last night's game having gone 6-0 with a sub-2 ERA in his last six starts but was lit up for eight earned runs on seven hits in just three innings of work. The idle Brewers moved within 1 1/2 games of the Rockies.

Simply put, the Cubs (88-68) resembled last year's deep offense in dismantling rookie right-hander Luke Weaver (7-2), who came into the game with seven consecutive wins.




First, here's Cubs shortstop Addison Russell pursuing a foul ball well into contested territory along the third base wall.

Kris Bryant hit a homer and added two singles for Chicago.

Bryant has scored 110 runs and has hit 29 home runs in the season after winning the National League MVP award in 2016, and he's looking to keep his hot hitting going as a likely playoff berth approaches for the Cubs.

"He got into some tough counts and had to hit more of the plate", St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said of Weaver. Martinez jammed his thumb during the team's last series against the Cubs and did not appear in either of St. Louis' games over the weekend. He's 14-and-9 with a 3.43 ERA.
