Reds slugger Frazier wins Home Run Derby

0

CINCINNATI: Cincinnati Reds slugger Todd Frazier defeated Los Angeles Dodgers centerfielder Joc Pederson 15-14 in the finals on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) to win the Major League Baseball Home Run Derby. Frazier became the first host player to win the slugging contest since Ryne Sandberg of the Chicago Cubs in 1990. The homer-hitting skills contest came on the eve of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game at the same venue. Frazier had lost in last year’s contest, inspiring him for this year. “It pushed me a lot,” Frazier said. “I worked a lot in the off-season.”
