Bryce Harper headlines Home Run Derby (Harper wins 19-18)

Nationals-Pirates-Baseball

Accentuating his uniform with an American flag sleeve and a District of Columbia flag bandanna, Harper hit 19 home runs in the final round to beat out Chicago Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber by a single blast. The only adversity Baez may face would be - in my mind - a meeting with Washington Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper. Good story too. Aguilar spent a long time in the minors before finally getting a chance to prove himself in the big leagues, and he's made the most of his opportunity.

He can only hope this helps him get back into the swing.

He is now tied with Philadelphia Phillies Rhys Hoskins for the most home runs in Round 1. In Harper's case, he was off Schwarber's final-round pace of 18 home runs by five with less than one minute on the clock.

The final will be Harper against Schwarber.

Last year Yankees slugger Aaron Judge belted his way to the Home Run Derby title. "I knew that he had the home crowd behind him".

Aguilar, the No. 1 seed, came in ranked sixth in the majors with 24 homers.

In his career, Freeman is hitting.320 in 63 games at Nationals Park with 21 doubles and seven homers. After Muncy hit 12 home runs in four minutes, Harper went on to smack 13 jacks in less than three minutes to advance. "Just try to hit the ball over the fence and I did that".

In the end, the only bump in the road I see for Schwarber and Baez reaching the 2018 Home Run Derby Finale would be a weak round from either competitor. It's 336' down the left field line and 335' down the right. Harper lost to Yoenis Cespedes in the 2013 final at Citi Field in NY. But alas, Max Muncy was on fire, and Javy's 16 dingers weren't enough to get out of the first round.
