Giants' Davis Webb trying to recruit Bryce Harper to NY

Giants' Davis Webb trying to recruit Bryce Harper to NY

The most thrilling first-round match featured a near buzzer-beater by Houston's Alex Bregman, who fell to Schwarber 16-15.

Schwarber racked up 18 home runs, and Harper was barely scraping by during the first half of his plate appearance. Unfortunately, he ran into a home run-hitting machine in Schwarber, who bested him with 16.

Taking on eighth-seeded Rhys Hoskins of the Philadelphia Phillies, fifth-seeded Schwarber drove out the most home runs in a single round of any competitor up until that point by blasting 21 bombs. Hoskins opened up the matchup by slugging an impressive 20 home runs, but Schwarber was up to the challenge.

Hoskins advanced to the semifinals of the eight-hitter field, knocking off Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesus Aguilar, 17-12, in the first round.

The Cubs outfielder went first in the final round and had 18 home runs.

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".

Ome person who came away impressed is someone who knows a thing or two about winning a home run contest himself.

The Nationals star triggered a $1 ticket promotion with his Home Run Derby win at Nationals Park on Monday night. They are allowed one 45-second timeout to stop the clock, and will be awarded an extra 30 seconds should they hit two home runs further than 440 feet.

Harper took on Freddie Freeman from the Atlanta Braves and hit several long shots en route to a 13-12 victory.

The grand total of home runs hit during the event was 221.
