What did Harper have to say after winning the Derby?

As far as I can tell, there's no accurate historical archive of Home Run Derby long balls and times.

"It's so tiring", Harper said.

"(I told him to) make sure you look good out there. He always does, so that works.

Aguilar, the No. 1 seed, came in ranked sixth in the majors with 24 homers.

No. 4 seed Alex Bregman vs.

Alone at the end of the night stood Harper, the hometown slugger facing comparisons to the hero of Ernest Thayer's famed 1888 poem, "Casey at the Bat".

He more than understood why Aaron Judge, who put on an electric show in winning a year ago in Miami, decided back in the spring he wouldn't try to defend.

Harper ran into a similar situation his his second round, dragging behind as Muncy led with 12.

He will face Max Muncy of the Dodgers.

Hoskins downed Aguilar 17-12. Schwarber then barely edged out Bregman, the only American League hitter, by a score of 16-15.

The semifinal matchup between Schwarber and Philadelphia's Rhys Hoskins went down to the final swing.

Update II: Schwarber downed Hoskins 21-20 to advance to the finals. Taking part in a showcase of this power only seemed a formality for the outfielder - and he finally got the chance in 2018.

Nats' right fielder Bryce Harper said at a press conference via NBC Washington that he hopes that he will be sticking around D.C. for the foreseeable future, largely for his love of Nationals manager Dave Martinez. A camera caught Harper skipping down the runway and bounding up the steps like Rocky Balboa, and the crowd erupted when he emerged to take aim at Schwarber, according to ESPN.

Cespedes popped 32 total home runs by the end of the night, beating Harper in the finals during the 2013 Home Run Derby.
