Bryce Harper Completes Colossal Comeback to Win Home Run Derby

Posted July 19, 2018

Harper crushed nine home runs in ten swings-I'll say that again: nine home runs in ten swings-in his final minute, to tie Schwarber.

In the final, Schwarber came in just under his total from the semifinals with 18 homers and Harper started off his round slowly, but rallied late and got the tying homer with just a few seconds left. Fans (of Schwarber's) saw Harper's father, his pitcher, throwing the pitches before the previous home run had landed.

Rumor: Milwaukee Bucks rescind offer to Jabari Parker
In Chicago, Parker will join a young nucleus that includes Wendell Carter Jr ., Kris Dunn , Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine . The Bulls have been in talks with Parker's agent, Chicago-based Mark Bartelstein.

The Home Run Derby is arguably more exciting that the All-Star Game itself. They had cheered Harper throughout, screaming "Let's go, Bryce!" and gently heckling his opponents.

Over the first two-and-a-half minutes of his round, the OH native hit 12 home runs. So much so, that this year's victor clubbed 45 dingers at Nationals Park on Tuesday night.

Netflix shares plunge as streaming company sees 'hiccup' in subscriber growth
In after-hours trading on Monday, Netflix shares sunk 14 percent to $343.60, down from an earlier close of $400.48. In a letter to shareholders , Netflix called its second-quarter performance "strong but not stellar".

Make no mistake. Everyone who participated can hit for power and all of them peppered the stands with long home runs.

The 2015 NL MVP beat Freddie Freeman of the Atlanta Braves and Max Muncy of the Dodgers before trumping the fifth-seeded Schwarber, who put the pressure on with a solid outing before Harper stepped to the plate. Schwarber then barely edged out Bregman, the only American League hitter, by a score of 16-15. Hoskins opened by blasting 20 homers, the highest number that had been hit to that point.

Kylie Jenner Was Called "Self-Made" by 'Forbes'-and Readers Aren't Having It
Most of her wealth comes from her make-up company Kylie Cosmetics , which has now sold more than $630m (£475m) worth of products. Thanks to this minuscule overhead and marketing costs, Forbes writes, the profits are outsize and go directly to Jenner.

At the same time, it's the Home Run Derby. Hopefully that will be enough to entice Cleveland Indians stars Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor to partcipate in the Home Run Derby.
