When attempting a tough catch past the foul zone during Monday's game against the St Louis Cardinals, Chicago Cubs fielder Addison Russell knocked over an opposing fan's nachos.

Russell barreled into the fan trying to catch a foul ball, accidentally spilled his nachos; he was later seen wiping cheese off his hands and arms. First, they eliminated their rivals the St. Louis Cardinals with a 10-2 win.

Russell decided to make the delivery to Gudermuth when one of the Cubs clubhouse men came into the dugout with a new plate of nachos.

Junis pitched 5 2/3 innings and allowed six runs, all earned, on seven hits. Lester is 4-4 with a 2.36 ERA in 13 career starts against the Cardinals, including a 1-1 mark and 3.28 ERA in four meetings this season. They trail the Colorado Rockies by 2 1/2 games for the NL's second wild card.

The St. Louis Cardinals need a victory here after splitting their last eight games. The @Cubs shortstop makes things right.
