MLB Home Run Derby 2017

MLB Home Run Derby 2017

Rookie Aaron Judge, who has seemingly come out of nowhere to lead the majors in home runs with 30, will be Bour's first round opponent.

The former Fresno State star turned Major League All Star won the Home Run Derby on Tuesday at Marlins Park in Miami. No doubt, many fans want to see Stanton swing away against Yankees rookie sensation Aaron Judge for the title.

After dispatching Bour in round one, in epic fashion, Judge returned to beat fellow sensational rookie Cody Bellinger. The 507 foot and 513 foot dingers were the longest two home runs ever tracked by Statcast in the Home Run Derby, regular season or postseason. Judge is right behind him with an average of 416.4 feet for his home runs, and Charlie Blackmon has hit his 20 home runs for an average of 413.4 feet.

"It was a blast".

"Aaron Judge is awesome", Marlins outfielder Marcell Ozuna said, per ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. "Everything about today was fantastic".

Though perhaps coming up shy of all-time Derbies such as Mark McGwire dominating at Fenway Park (only to fall to Griffey the finals, or Todd Frazier against Joc Pederson), the excitement that Judge created is great for one of sports' best All-Star Game exhibitions. Defending Champion Giancarlo Stanton, who suffered a disappointing first round loss to New York Yankee's catcher Gary Sanchez. Sano, after edging the Royals' Mike Moustakas in the first round, 11-10, advanced to the championship by defeating a gassed Sanchez in the second round, 11-10, and he didn't have much more to offer in the championship round, slamming 10 for an underwhelming three-round total of 32.

With just over two minutes left in the round, he still trailed 22 to 9. Judge went on a tear and hit moonshots like his life depended on it. When a writer asked Kershaw if he thought Judge had a chance to set the single-season home run record, Kershaw gave the writer a quizzical look. One time out is allotted to a player in each of the first two rounds, and players get two timeouts each in the finals. He would get to 11 home runs very quickly, but started to pop up a few too many in a row. For me, I got no expectations.

Like many other players here, Washington all-star outfielder Bryce Harper is happy that the All-Star Game no longer determines home-field advantage for the World Series.
