Harper defeats Schwarber to win Home Run Derby

The hometown hero adorned with American flag attire took down America's Large Adult Son. He launched the winning blast on his second extra swing, holding his bat over his head and walking down the first-base line as it cleared the center-field fence. The venue will also host the 2018 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night.

A video of the complete ceremony is available online. Muncy outhomered Baez 17-16.

Schwarber had earned a 30-second bonus in his second-round match by hitting at least two home runs of at least 440 feet, but he didn't need it as he passed Hoskins with his final swing in regulation time. They usually go for $37, but not after the Harper discount. He is the first player to win the Home Run Derby in his home ballpark since former Reds slugger Todd Frazier won the 2015 event at the Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. Then the top home run hitters in the Little League, ages 12-14, will be paired up with a Home Run Derby contestant and compete for prizes too. And in each case, he went on a tear, hitting 12 homers after the breather in both rounds.

France's was simple, Croatia's brutal
The first match was the most momentous - a 2-1 win for France in the 1998 World Cup semifinals at Stade de France outside Paris. Inside the centre, cheers were deafening when Croatia scored their first goal to briefly tie the game at 1-1.

In turn, the $45 off of tickets was so much that the Nationals had to instead list some tickets at $1 because the promotion would have otherwise made them free.

Webb, like many other fans on social media, is now trying to lure Harper to come play in NY, too.

This is the first Home Run Derby title for Harper, who was the runner-up to Yoenis Cespedes in the 2013 Home Run Derby.

Trump slams reporting of Russian Federation summit
Brennan said, "Because clearly he's concerned and, I think, fearful about what might be exposed in that investigation". It was an attempt at clarification that came after uproarious anger at Trump's performance in Helsinki.

For as Harper himself said after capturing the derby crown, if the Nationals can bottle Monday's magic and retain it over the next three months, postseason success could at last await.

In the midst of it all - and in the middle of trying season - Harper grabbed the microphone and said: "This crowd: Wow!"

He will face Max Muncy of the Dodgers.

Despite a players-only meeting where he was asked by teammates to return to the lineup, he sat out the rest of the season. This marks the second major move of the off-season for the Raptors as Toronto fired Coach of the Year Dwane Casey.
