However, while using a graphic to break down where some of the home runs landed, ESPN used the wrong Harper.

His 17 home runs in the opening round caught the attention of the baseball world. He was drafted by the Oakland Athletics and moved on to play for the Midland RockHounds in 2013 through 2014.

Harper hit 45 home runs in the derby. In that bonus time, Harper slugged a 19th homer to take the victory.

Hoskins, the No. 8 seed, pulled the biggest upset of the first round when he knocked off top-seeded Jesus Aguilar from the Milwaukee Brewers, 17-12, in the first matchup. While Hoskins did not win, he sure made a name for himself on the national stage with 37 home runs.

But Harper caught fire, going on a tear and tying Kyle Schwarber with 18 home runs before time expired in the final round of the 2018 Home Run Derby.

Even though their man Alex Bregman lost an epic first round battle to Chicago Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber, the Houston Astros stole the show.

Harper hit 13 home runs in the first round, eliminating Freddie Freeman and advancing to the semifinals. Unfortunately, he ran into a home run-hitting machine in Schwarber, who bested him with 16.

The victor had six home runs that year.

The Cubs' outfielder fell behind early with only two home runs in the first minute of his round. The Nationals favorite then hit 7 homers in one minute, paving the way to overtake Muncy. His score of 21 in round 2 was the highest single-round score of the night.
