On Monday, Giancarlo Stanton laid waste to the competition at the Home Run Derby, needing just 13 ½ minutes to launch 61 bombs that traveled approximately 27,187 feet. Before this year, only twice had someone hit 20 or more home runs in a single round of the Derby, Stanton did twice in a night, hitting 24 in the first, 17 in the second, and 20 in the third – nobody else hit more than 16 in any round. Stanton hit more home runs on Monday than Yoenis Cespedes hit in winning back-to-back derbies in 2014 and 2015. All of this is to say that Stanton hit a lot of home runs.
On Tuesday, Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer was named MVP of the All Star Game, after his second-inning homer tied the game 1-1 and his third-inning single drove in the AL’s fourth and final run of their 4-2 victory over the NL. Hosmer’s teammate Salvador Perez drove in the AL’s other 2 runs with a homer run of his own. The National League had a chance to tie it up in the 8th after loading the bases with two outs, but reliever Will Harris came on the face Aledmys Diaz, and got him looking on a 3-2 fastball over the outside corner. NL starter Johnny Cueto surrendered both homers, and took the loss after giving up 3 runs in an inning and a two-thirds. Indians starter Corey Kluber got the win for AL, having pitched a single inning of scoreless ball.
