Twins' Sano finishes 2nd in Home Run Derby

3:30 | MLB Aaron Judge The new face of baseball

TV broadcaster F.P. Santangelo tweeted that he was told no one has ever hit the Marlins Park's roof, including Miami Marlins superstar Giancarlo Stanton, who is nearly as big as Judge at 6 feet 6 inches and 245 pounds.

It started in the first round, when Judge's matchup, Miami Marlins first basemen Justin Bour, put on the most impressive display of the night to that point, blasting 22 homers and celebrating after several of them.

Baseball's best and brightest invade South Beach for the Midsummer Classic at Marlins Park in Miami. Judge followed that performance with a 513-foot blast in the second round.

No. 3 Cody Bellinger vs.

Judge, who leads the majors with 30 homers, was the second seed.

Judge then took down Miguel Sano in easy fashion.

As you can see, Chicago's Todd Frazier has hit 10 more home runs in the competition's history than second-place Prince Fielder. Upon finishing the round, teammate Marcell Ozuna chest-bumped with him in celebration. "Aaron Judge is just wonderful".

Sano looked worn out, though, in the finals and took 50 seconds to hit his first home run.

Judge was seeded No. 2 entering the derby and some saw him as a clear favorite along with defending champion Giancarlo Stanton.

Stanton almost caught Sanchez but fell short on his last two attempts.

Sherman expected the bulk of the action on the Home Run Derby to be placed in the last two hours before it begins (8 p.m. ET on ESPN, Watch ESPN). Moustakas has 25 long balls as well, while Sano has 21 for the year. The 24-year-old hit his way to the finals with wins over Mike Moustakas and Sanchez. He's played just 70 games before the All-Star break, hitting a homer once every 10.28 at-bats. Judge has already broken Joe DiMaggio's record for most home runs by a Yankees rookie and he also ranks second in the AL with 66 RBI. There's a good chance he could come back in the future.

The home run contest is part of the glitz and glamour that surrounds the annual All-Star Game which this year will feature Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale and Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer as the starting pitchers.
