Russell hit his first home run of the season in the second inning off Cincinnati starter Sonny Gray. The 25-year-old has now played six games for the Cubs since returning from a suspension for domestic violence, and he's batting .250 with a .940 OPS. Russell and Daniel Descalso figure to split time at second base moving forward.
