Houser's only other mistake in five career relief outings spanning 7 2-3 innings versus Chicago was a two-run homer by Kris Bryant in a 4-1 Brewers loss May 12.
"That's a big turning point, anytime you give a three-run homer", Lester said. Russell stole 2d with a head-first trip and later scored on neutral fielder Christian Yelich's throwing error.

Addison Russell, thrust back into the role of everyday shortstop with Javy Báez out with a hairline fracture of his left thumb, broke a scoreless tie with a home run in the fifth inning.
Russell made his 13th start at shortstop this season Saturday. "I just think it's a matter of angles and getting back to the side that he had been used to". He will travel with the team to San Diego. If anything happened to Russell, the Cubs would roll with David Bote as the backup shortstop and the 38-year-old Zobrist might be next in line after that for the team's most important defensive position.

Baez has emerged as a vocal leader in the dugout during games and his personality and fearless nature has set a great example for his teammates. To make room on the 40-man roster for Hultzen, the Cubs designated catcher Taylor Davis for assignment. Although, his play at shortstop wasn't impressive, but with final word still out on Javier Baèz the Cubs may not have many better options.
Beyond his impact on the field, the Cubs are losing a special player in Baez - whom Willson Contreras called "the heart of this team". "We're going to miss him a lot, but like somebody said, 'One steps out, one steps in.' Of course, we're going to miss him and hopefully he recovers really soon".
