Dude. The Home Run Derby has always been fun to me.

Eight sluggers, seven of whom are from the National League, will be pitted against each other in bracket form to determine the home run king. He was drafted by the Oakland Athletics and moved on to play for the Midland RockHounds in 2013 through 2014. In that bonus time, Harper slugged a 19th homer to take the victory.

Leading off the derby, Hoskins cranked 17 jacks to upset 1-seed Jesus Aguilar, who hit 11.

Bryce Harper cheated. Or his dad cheated.

Amid a disappointing regular season and speculation about his future in Washington, Nationals slugger Bryce Harper gave his fans one more reason to cheer Monday night, winning the Home Run Derby at Nationals Park. Then come nights where the Home Run Derby arrives on Harper's doorstep and he takes it from there.

In the opening round, Schwarber was pitted against Alex Bregman of the Houston Astros. Unfortunately, he ran into a home run-hitting machine in Schwarber, who bested him with 16. A change to the format in 2015 quickened the pace, and simplified the concept-each player hits as many home runs as he can in four minutes, and the one with the most homers advances.

At the same time, it's the Home Run Derby.

The matchups were determined by the number of home runs hit heading into the All-Star festivities. His score of 21 in round 2 was the highest single-round score of the night.

Harper had just nine with 1 minute, 20 seconds left in his four-minute time frame, but then crushed homers on nine straight swings.
