Bryce Harper’s HR Derby win scores Nats fans $1 tickets

The 2018 Home Run Derby was held at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., the home of the Washington Nationals.

The hashtag #JusticeforSchwarber sprang up, and the Home Run Derby truthers were out there.

Since making his debut in Major League Baseball in 2015, many envisioned the Cubs' young slugger participating in this event.

Sure, the Home Run Derby is just a sideshow held on the eve of the All-Star Game.

The crowd favorite in his home stadium, Harper needed 13 homers to eliminate the Dodgers' Max Muncy, and he blasted his 13th to right field with about a minute left in his 4 minutes of hitting time. Harper then hit the winning home run on the second pitch during his extra time.

With 24 home runs this season, Aguilar was the top seed and faced Philadelphia Phillies slugger Rhys Hoskins in the opening round. Eight hitters competed in a home run bracket featuring a series of head-to-head competitions.

Even as a television-centric spectacle, the Home Run Derby provides excitement for fans in the seats.

But fear not Nationals fans!

Muncy then easily took out Báez with time to spare, walking away after hitting 17 homers.

But on this night at least, Harper did not disappoint. However, he hit 9 home runs in just over 1 minute to tie things up. To Washington sports fans, Tuesday's All-Star Game itself might seem an anticlimax.

Bryce Harper, who said he was exhausted after taking his cuts in the first round, certainly appeared gassed in the final round.
