Pederson, who finished second in 2015 from Runby Derby, was the first of the eight participants to be hit after he had been slotted. He started slowly. When he called his 45-second time limit with 2:11 left in his round, he had only four home runs. It seemed likely that they would be destroyed soon. Then he hit 13 over the final 2:11 and breaks four others during a further 30-second period. He brought Alex Bregman 21-16 Houston Astros to reach the second round.
