CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Indians slugger Carlos Santana swung for the fences Monday at Progressive Field during the MLB All-Star Home Run Derby.
He wound up with 13 home runs, which isn’t too shabby. However, Mets big man Pete Alonso eliminated Santana late in the first round with 14 home runs.
Toronto Blue Jays’ Vladimir Guerrero Jr. came out swinging in the first round and knocked home 29 dingers, but in the end, Alonso beat him 23-22 in the final round.
However, Guerrero Jr. will walk away with bragging rights, after hitting the most home runs (91) ever in a Derby.
Pitcher Carlos Carrasco, who is battling leukemia, is in the house to cheer Santana on:
Here’s the 2019 lineup:
