Last move of second half.


Done and done. This is your second transaction of the second half.
You have zero remaining.

Ronald Acuña has homered in 5 straight games, 7 of the last 8, and led off the last three games with a HR.

This phenomenon is also dubbed "How Southpaw19 Came Back to Win HR Derby".

My team seems to be out of gas just before the finish line. Given the common players on the two teams, it looks like it comes down to:

Trout, Betts, Olson, Chapman, Pinder and Muncy for Agony & Ivy

vs.

Goldschmidt, Ramirez, Freeman, CarGo, Yelich and Desmond for me.

We had the closest finish in 12 documented seasons of the NSBB HR Derby!
In 2007, 2012, and 2015, the difference was two... this season... JUST ONE HR WAS THE DIFFERENCE!
That Home Run ? Nolan Arenado ... in the 9th inning ... of a tie-breaker game #163!
