Bryce Harper cheated in Home Run Derby, Cubs fans allege

Bryce Harper cheated in Home Run Derby, Cubs fans allege

In the semis, Harper topped Max Muncy 13-12 to advance to the finals. In his bonus time, Harper hit a no-doubter to center. Harper's father, who again served as his pitcher for the Derby, didn't help matters with a few errant pitches-enough that the hometown crowd, suddenly grown pensive, let out a smattering of boos.

The Bryce Harper All-Star Complex, located at 2801 Fox Mill Road, includes two renovated fields and is the second baseball facility for youth named after Harper in the area.

So, instead of Judge and Stanton rattling the rafters like previous year, the Derby featured All-Star leadoff hitter Javier Báez, Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman, Atlanta Braves slugger Freddie Freeman and three non-All-Stars - Schwarber, Philadelphia Phillies left fielder-first baseman Rhys Hoskins and Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Max Muncy.

Some D.C. fans have wondered whether Harper and the Washington Nationals have suffered Casey's fate.

Bryce Harper hit a total of 45 home runs in winning Monday night's Home Run Derby at Nationals Park.

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.

He also made sure to send them home happy.

After stunning top-seed Jesus Aguilar of Milwaukee in the opening round, the eighth-seeded Hoskins ripped 20 long balls to put the pressure on Schwarber.

With a combined 37 home runs in the first two rounds, Schwarber earned himself a spot to compete for the title in the championship round.

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. Despite hitting 23 home runs in the first half of the season, Harper's batting average has fallen to an anemic.214.
