Harper participated in the 2013 Derby but finished in second place behind Yoenis Céspedes.

Schwarber racked up 18 home runs, and Harper was barely scraping by during the first half of his plate appearance. Harper unlocked 30 seconds of bonus time by hitting two home runs at least 440 feet. Give me them, along with Mike Trout, Manny Machado, Nolen Arenado, Mookie Betts and throw in Harper for a local fan favourite. The other seven sluggers will be making their Derby debuts.

Things didn't look good when Harper's dad had a hard time feeding his son pitches that could easily be hit for home runs, and his son appeared out of sync with his swing.

He can only hope this helps him get back into the swing.

Motorola has introduced a new budget smartphone
For connectivity goal , the phone features 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, a micro USB port and a 3.5 mm jack. The battery on the device can be similar to the original United States model of the Moto E5 Play which packs a 2800mAh battery .

The Home Run Derby will be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on ESPN. On account of that (and by virtue of the fact that nine home runs in 47 seconds still seems insane to write down), I can pretty confidently say that's the fastest nine-home run stretch ever completed. After Muncy hit 12 home runs in four minutes, Harper went on to smack 13 jacks in less than three minutes to advance. 52 home runs is a mark reached just 32 times in major-league history, and our guy had 52 (granted, the HR Derby is glorified batting practice) in under five minutes.

The hometown hero adorned with American flag attire took down America's Large Adult Son. Of course, Thayer's poem ends in anticlimax: "There is no joy in Mudville-mighty Casey has struck out". Harper responded with a performance that drew the loudest cheers of the night at Nationals Park. As Harper has slumped, so have the Nationals.

The Cubs' main push for this year's World Series is imminent now more than ever. The Nationals have won division titles four out of the last six seasons, but have yet to win so much as a single playoff series.

Milwaukee's Aguilar, the NL home run leader at the break, was eliminated in the opening round by Hoskins 17-12. Following a timeout, Schwarber proceeded to hit nine more homers to close out his round, slugging the winning home run as the clock expired.
