Harper defeats Schwarber to win Home Run Derby

Home Run Derby results today: Bryce Harper of Washington Nationals wins

Bryce Harper Caught Fire At The End Of The Final Round To Win The 2018 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.

President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic
The emir says through a translator that the World Cup "will be a huge and great festival for all our country". Grabar-Kitarovic thanked Putin for what she said was the successful organisation of the competition.

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 Sees No Reason to Believe Russia Behind Election Meddling
Kansas Senator Jerry Moran says Trump missed an opportunity to publicly condemn Russia's interference in USA elections. Trump did not criticize Russia's support for Syrian leader Bashar Assad, whom the US has called on to step down.

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.
