After the first two head-to-head sets by the major leaguers, the finalists in the All-Star High School Home Run Derby - top national prospects Rece Hinds and Bobby Witt Jr. - took their turns, with Witt winning with just seconds remaining in his turn.

Bregman was one of the surprises of the event, blasting 15 home runs during his fast-paced first round.

After Freeman hit 12 home runs over the 4-minute span, Harper unleashed six shots of at least 440 feet and secured the victory with a drive to center long before the clock expired.

Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Jesús Aguilar earned the No. 1 seed with his breakout first half.

Bryce Harper cheated. Or his dad cheated.

Angry Kyle Schwarber fans took to Twitter to accuse the Nationals star of foul play during his dramatic rally to win the Home Run Derby on Monday. The Nationals favorite then hit 7 homers in one minute, paving the way to overtake Muncy.

Harper would go on to hit a HR Derby walk off with the title in his bonus 30-second round. However, he hit 9 home runs in just over 1 minute to tie things up. Hoskins opened up the matchup by slugging an impressive 20 home runs, but Schwarber was up to the challenge.

Harper, Báez and Aguilar will both follow up their Home Run Derby appearances with positions on the National League's All-Star team.
