Home Run Derby was a short-lived television series that ran only one year (1960). Hall of Famers Hank Aaron and Duke Snider were paired in one episode, also united for four homers. Even the Cleveland Indians hit 4 HR in the first two innings of Thursday’s series opener in New York against the Yankees, which makes me to wonder what the squads could do for an encore after joining for 10 long balls in the matchup.
Together with the MLB Network available to go over launching angles and exit velocities, Friday’s fracas features rookie Aaron Civale (1-1, 1.00) on the bulge for its seeing Indians and Masahiro Tanaka (8-6, 4.64) up next for the Yankees. New York started on a -145 money line, that amount climbing to the -150s instantly, and it is no real surprise to find that the 101/2-conduct complete juiced to the’over’ at a certain stores.
