Bryce Harper cheated in Home Run Derby, Cubs fans allege

That victory set up a showdown with Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Rhys Hoskins in the semifinal round.

Bryce Harper won Monday's Home Run Derby in dramatic fashion at his home ballpark, but it left a sour taste in the mouth of another fan base.

Harper returned to hit three more home runs in 22 seconds, the last of them inside the right-field foul pole.

The first round started out with a bang, as Hoskins hit 17 out of the park and defeating Aguilar, who had only 12.

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".

Four future Hall-of-Famers were in the field of 10 competitors in the first edition of the derby, held in the mid-80s at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis.

The other semifinal saw Max Muncy of the Los Angeles Dodgers go against Harper. However, the slugger had earned a 30-second time bonus by hitting two home runs longer than 440 feet. Schwarber then barely edged out Bregman, the only American League hitter, by a score of 16-15. Unfortunately, he ran into a home run-hitting machine in Schwarber, who bested him with 16. Schwarber racked up the highest total of runs with 55.

Most disappointing performance in the 2018 Home Run Derby?

Where is the Home Run Derby next season?

Hopefully that will be enough to entice Cleveland Indians stars Jose Ramirez and Francisco Lindor to partcipate in the Home Run Derby.
