After leaping into the stands after a foul ball, Russell's foot caught the Cardinals' fans nachos, sending them to the turf. And best of all, that fan ended up whole in the end, as Russell, the Cubs and the Cardinals teamed up to give him two new orders of nachos.
The Chicago Cubs effectively knocked one rival out of the National League Central race over the weekend, and they can officially eliminate another as early as Monday.
The fan later tweeted his thanks, but made sure to note that the first set of nachos were "loaded" while the nachos that Russell brought him were plain. This has been the worst of Jon Lester's three years with the Chicago Cubs. Chicago is 11-2 in its last 13 games and 19-8 in its last 27. And I'm all for a Cubs player spilling something on somebody else every night until the end of the season, over three more nights in St. Louis and three games back at Wrigley. The Brewers were idle yesterday, and Miami played at Colorado.

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina was taken out of the game in the seventh inning after he took two foul balls off his catcher's mask. But that didn't stop Cubs shortstop Addison Russell from showing some compassion to a St. Louis fan.
Baez hit his first home run since September 13 with two outs, driving in Zobrist and Heyward in the third, giving Chicago an 8-1 advantage. That lead became 4-0 after Russell was doubled home by Jason Heyward. Bryant was 3 for 4 with a home run last night and also scored a pair of runs.
