Addison Russell was all over the highlights with a diving stop on Monday, but for those that didn't see it, he made nearly an identical play Tuesday.
Take a look:
And in case the great defensive effort wasn't enough, Russell also gave the Cubs a win with a walk-off hit.
Not a bad night for the youngster.

Addison Russell is the youngest player in the National League at 21-years-old and he keeps making gold glove plays at a position he didn’t even play regularly before he made his MLB debut with the Chicago Cubs in April. His glove was on display once again in Tuesday night’s game against the Washington Nationals.
Touted as one of the best defensive shortstops as a prospect, working...
What can’t Addison Russell do? Well, besides hold on to his bat, but wow this guy is something special. In Saturday’s game between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates, the rookie showed off his athleticism in the fifth inning, making a spectacular catch in shallow center field.
