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.

Harper returned to hit three more home runs in 22 seconds, the last of them inside the right-field foul pole.

The six-time All-Star arranged to have his dad, Ron, pitch to him in the annual contest on the eve of the All-Star Game.

He started with 16 dingers in the first round, then matched Rhys Hoskins as the second player ever to hit more than 20 homers (21) in the semifinals. In the semis, Harper topped Max Muncy 13-12 to advance to the finals.

The 2015 NL MVP beat Freddie Freeman of the Atlanta Braves and Max Muncy of the Dodgers before trumping the fifth-seeded Schwarber, who put the pressure on with a solid outing before Harper stepped to the plate.

Schwarber will face Bryce Harper, who advanced through the first two rounds with a showy display of power at his home stadium. Harper is also the first left-handed hitter to win the Derby since Prince Fielder in 2012. Needing to hit nine home runs in a minute, Harper got into a groove to tie Kyle Schwarber's 18 home runs at the buzzer.

The Phillies first baseman, who is the eighth seed, stunned top-seeded Jesus Aguilar in the first round.

Major League Baseball's Home Run Derby will take place tonight at 8:00pm ET from Nationals Park in Washington D.C. The Derby, the fourth installment since the event went to a timed format, can be seen on ESPN. Baez hit the longest shot of the Derby, a 479-footer.
