Aaron Judge, the big swingin' rookie from the New York Yankees, did not disappoint during last night's Home Run Derby. The slugger blasted balls off the windows beyond the Marlins Park outfield, even hitting the stadium's roof with one moonshot!

MLB's current home runs leader beat out Justin Bour of the Marlins in the first round. The pair combined for 45 total homeruns, with Judge winning on his 23rd blast of the round. In the semifinals he bested fellow rookie phenom Cody Bellinger from the Los Angeles Dodgers on his way to finals showdown with Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sanó. Much to the surprise of the hometown crowd, defending champion Giancarlo Stanton was ousted in the first round by Judge's teammate Gary Sánchez

The eight contestants, including Mike Moustakas from the Kansas City Royals and Charlie Blackmon from the Colorado Rockies launched a total of 197 home runs. Relive each and every one of 'em over on MLB.com, and be sure to watch the 2017 MLB All-Star Games tonight starting at 8:00 pm ET.
