Series Preview Cubs vs. Cardinals by Nate Greabe


Let's pause our national conversation about peaceful protest of institutionalized racism for a moment to watch Cubs shortstop Addison Russell kick nachos all over a Cardinals fan.

The Cubs went on to win, 10-2, but the Cardinals fan was really the big victor.

A few innings later, Russell walked over to Gudermuth with a new tray of nachos provided to him by the Busch Stadium staff. Russell even stayed to allow Gudermuth to take a quick picture, which the fan later posted on Twitter.

The loss eliminated the Cardinals from NL Central contention and dimmed their wild-card hopes. St. Louis lost the final two contests of its three-game series at Pittsburgh over the weekend, while the Cubs took three of four from Milwaukee and have won 10 of their last 12.
