April 14

2008 Bowman Sterling #BS-ARU - Adam Russell (Auto)

On this day in 1983, relief pitcher Adam Russell was born.

Adam earned his first MLB win in the tenth inning of a game against the Cleveland Indians on July 1, 2008. Russell quickly earned his second win in a similar situation, in the tenth inning of a game against the Cleveland Indians, the very next day. Adam would go to 4-0 in his first ten appearances.

He was set to repeat that success in 2009, until he became a part of a trade to the San Diego Padres for Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy. Russell was drafted by the White Sox in the sixth round of the 2004 draft.
