The Angels' Mark Trumbo put on a power display but was undone in the All-Star Home Run Derby in the dreaded "swing off."
Trumbo tied with Toronto’s Jose Bautista for second place in Monday’s semifinals in Kansas City and had a special five-swing contest to see who would join Detroit’s Prince Fielder in the final.
Trumbo hit a home run in only his fifth and last swing; Bautista advanced when he then hit his second homer with his third swing.
In the semifinals, Trumbo hit such impressive shots you had to be concerned ESPN’s bombastic announcer Chris Berman was going to injure his voice trying to describing them. Or hope so, anyway.
