The Columbus Dispatch - - Mlb -

CHICAGO — Ad­di­son Rus­sell re­ceived a rous­ing ova­tion as he stepped to the plate for the first time in six weeks. Then he gave the crowd a rea­son to cheer even louder.

Rus­sell home­red in his first at-bat since be­ing ac­ti­vated from the dis­abled list, Kyle Hen­dricks pitched ef­fec­tively into the eighth in­ning and the Chicago Cubs beat the St. Louis Car­di­nals 4-1 on Satur­day to in­crease their NL Cen­tral lead.
