Kyle Schwarber narrowly escapes Alex Bregman to advance in Home Run Derby

With just 12 dingers at the 1:32 mark, Schwarber called a timeout and came out firing after that.

Harper hit the contest-winning blast in extra time, the reward for hitting two homers at least 440 feet during the 4 minutes of regulation.

Harper, who has 23 home runs this season, advanced to the final with an astonishing spree of longball hitting. Follow our Facebook page to get updates on your news feed! Harper cinched the win over Kyle Schwarber of the Cubs in walk-off fashion, which, as you would expect, made for an exciting moment in the nation's capital.

The All-Star Home Run Derby used to capture the imagination of fans and All-Stars alike, but it appears that numerous game's biggest boppers have cooled on the idea.

Hoskins, Schwarber and Muncy are the three derby participants who were not named All-Stars.

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

With 17, Hoskins tied Muncy for the most in the first round, though Muncy and Harper stopped before time expired because they had already beaten their opponent. Schwarber racked up the highest total of runs with 55.

Of Hoskins' 37 homers against Phillies minor-league infield coordinator Chris Truby, the longest was a 466-foot shot in the semifinals, according to MLB Statcast. Schwarber then barely edged out Bregman, the only American League hitter, by a score of 16-15.

His teammate Javier Baez couldn't get out of the first round of the competition as he was beaten by the Dodgers' Max Muncy 17-16 in the first round. If anything, the way that the current bracket is set up, Baez has a real chance to break into the Derby finale.
