Good showing for Rhys Hoskins as he hits 17 home runs -- and it would have been even higher if not for a minute stretch where he tired out and went homerless, only to regain some steam in the final 30 seconds. He's the No. 8 seed, but he's set a tough target for Jesus Aguilar.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

As always, the most aspect of any Home Run Derby: Please don't let any of the kids in the outfield end up with a concussion. Rhys Hoskins is the first hitter and takes a timeout at the 2:05 mark as he sits on five home runs. He may have to get into the low teens to have a chance to beat out Jesus Aguilar, however.

Bryce Harper on his first half: "I look up there and see my average as well, and I look up there and go, 'Aw man, well that sucks.' But I look over a little bit to the right side of that and see 23 homers and 53 RBIs and 80 walks and runs scored and stuff like that. I don't know. Should I be hitting .300 or .280? Yeah, absolutely. But I guess I am where I'm at, and hopefully the only way I can go is up."

Bryce Harper on how to beat the shift: "You can't. If you hit a ball in the hole, then you're out. If you hit a ball up the middle, you're out. If I have a kid, I'm not going to tell him to stay through the middle anymore because if you hit a ball up the middle, you're out. I guess guys could bunt down the first-base line or third-base line if they shift you the other way. But you don't get paid to bunt. If you hit it over all of them, that's how you beat it."
