(BALTIMORE) – Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon said his team is going to lean heavily on its offense to make a strong push for the playoffs. His players responded to that challenge. Addison Russell hit a solo home run in the ninth inning and the Cubs beat the Baltimore Orioles 9-8 after squandering an eight-run lead on Friday night. Mark Trumbo tied the game 8-8 with a two-run homer off Koji Uehara (3-4) in the eighth. Russell responded when he hit a first-pitch, 96 mph fastball off Brad Branch (2-2) over the left field fence. Wilson Contreras and Kyle Schwarber hit back-to-back homers in a four-run first inning for Chicago. Ben Zobrist also homered onto the flag court behind the right field scoreboard and Jason Heyward reached Eutaw Street with another towering shot. Chicago improved to 3-6 in interleague play after going 15-5 against the AL last season. Welinton Castillo's ninth home run was a solo shot in the third for Baltimore, which left 10 runners on base. Trumbo went 2 for 3 with three RBI.
