Astros' Bregman to participate in Home Run Derby

Alex Bregman is the latest man to be named to the field of the Home Run Derby for the 2018 MLB All-Star Game.

Bregman matched his career-high in home runs with his 18th and 19th in the Houston Astros' 6-5 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old was named to his first All-Star Game as a reserve on the heels of an American League (AL) Player of the Month Award in June in which he batted .306 with 11 home runs and set a club record with 30 RBIs.
