No one expected to see much from Todd Frazier in Monday's Major League Baseball Home Run Derby. Players like Giancarlo Stanton, Yasiel Puig, and defending Home Run Derby champion Yoenis Cespedes continued to be the talk of the night, but Frazier somehow managed to find himself going one-on-one with the defending champion for a chance at the title.
Although he eventually lost by eight homers, Frazier still had a memorable night. His brother Charlie was able to live the wild ride with him as he was chosen by Todd as his pitcher for the evening.
"That was the best part, because they were both cheering me on and they want the best for me every time," Frazier said following his runner-up performance. "To be the National League guy for Cincinnati, at least I bring that back home, at least I'm the defending National League champ. I can put that on my resume."

He made us proud," Charlie Frazier said following the Derby.
