Mets rookie Alonso wins derby

CLEVELAND (AP) _ Toronto Blue Jays rookie Vladimir Guerrero Jr. set a Home Run Derby record by slamming 91 in the three rounds, but he lost the $1 million first prize when New York Mets rookie Pete Alonso went deep on his final swing. Guerrero belted 29 home runs in the first round and bettered that mark by hitting 40 in overtime to beat Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson. Alonso won each of his rounds in walk-off fashion, beating first baseman Carlos Santana and Atlanta outfielder Ronald Acuna (ah-KOON’-yah) Jr.
