Judge wins Home Run Derby after dramatic first round

"I was expected it", Judge said.

Let's break down the Home Run Derby bracket and predict who wins it all in 2017. Do not be surprised if Mike Moustakas comes out of nowhere pulls his home runs to the left side as he has been doing mostly all year. Who will win? We take a look at the field. For a rookie to do it is something truly ridiculous.

"That guy Aaron Judge, he doesn't get exhausted", Sano said. And sure, Judge may break TVs with his prodigious power, but Stanton?

Then he took care of Sano, who had upset defending champion Giancarlo Stanton of the Marlins in the second round. He's left dents in the furthest reaches of the stadium.

Stanton belted a record 61 homers in the Derby past year. Perhaps Stanton will have better luck, though many have Judge taking it all. He is batting just.232 with eight homers and 26 RBIs in 66 games. Over his last 165 games, Moustakas has crushed 46 home runs.

Stanton watched Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez put on a power display similar to his own last season in San Diego and narrowly beat him 17-16 in a first-round matchup at Marlins Park that provided plenty of thrills for the fans.

#8-Gary Sanchez +1600-You might say Sanchez hits hits the long ball in bunches. Judge was severely tested in the opening round, but a late surge propelled him past hometown favorite Justin Bour in the most dramatic slugfest of the competition. Maybe Cody Bellinger of the Los Angeles Dodgers, another rookie can shine?

Judge is listed at 6-7, 282 pounds.

For baseball fans, there are few instances in professional sports more exciting than a home run.

Local ties: Exeter native Brad Mills, a bench coach with the Cleveland Indians, will manage the American League.

Does he deserve his place?

This sets up the possibility of a Judge vs. Bellinger semi-finals, and a Judge vs. Stanton (or Sanchez) finals.

Judge had a tougher road to the second round than likely anticipated.

Stanton said he had never met Judge before Monday but was clearly impressed. In fact, I'm not sure it will be any of the guys I have mentioned. "He's really impressive", said Colorado's Charlie Blackmon, who was eliminated in the first round. Aaron Judge was in one corner and Miguel Sano the other.

"My first year in the big league I would walk up there, the first pitch would go by and I'm wondering why I missed that pitch". Sano hit 21 homers in the first half for the Twins.
