Northwoods League All-Star Game & Homerun Derby, July 24

Northwoods League All-Star Game & Homerun Derby, July 24

Bryce Harper of the Washington Nationals and National League hits his final home run to win the T-Mobile Home Run Derby at Nationals Park on July 16, 2018 in Washington, DC.

It hasn't exactly been the greatest hitting display by Bryce Harper this season, but the Washington Nationals superstar sure made up for it Monday night at the 2018 Home Run Derby. Accounting for the 30-second bonus a hitter gets for knocking at least two home runs longer than 440 feet, we have a total of 52 home runs on Harper's paces. If this rule was followed, Harper likely wouldn't have caught Schwarber's mark of 18 home runs in time, since he was down 18-9 with 90 seconds left.

In the post-game interviews, Harper couldn't stop praising the crowd and the D.C. fans in general.

"If it wasn't in front of my home crowd, I wouldn't have done it".

Things didn't look good when Harper's dad had a hard time feeding his son pitches that could easily be hit for home runs, and his son appeared out of sync with his swing.

The other semifinal saw Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers go against Harper.

The 51-year-old gathered his players in a circle on the pitch and told them they should in no way consider the defeat a failure. Things didn't work out like they'd hoped, but they certainly made the most out of the game.

No. 1 seed Jesus Aguilar vs. Each round, players will be given four minutes to hit as many home runs as possible.

Using a late surge, Schwarber pulled one ball after another over the right field wall to squeeze out a 21-20 victory - by far the highest-scoring matchup of the night.

The first round started out with a bang, as Hoskins hit 17 out of the park and defeating Aguilar, who had only 12.

Next, Schwarber edged the Houston Astros' Alex Bregman, 16-15.

Hoskins, who has 14 home runs this season for the Phillies, was invited to compete despite not being named a National League all-star. Teammate Javier Baez was eliminated in the first round.
