In the Home Run Derby your first two round totals determine whether you make the finals. Yoenis Cespedes had 17 in the first, so he was definitely going to make it. His opponent wasn’t clear, though. Now it is, with Bryce Harper hitting eight homers in round two. Chris Davis didn’t — in fact, he tore a bloody callous on his hand — and neither did Michael Cuddyer.
So the final is Cespedes vs. Harper. First two round totals are erased and it’s mano a mano. With two guys who weren’t in this league two years ago. Cool.
