A day after a foul ball struck a child at Kauffman Stadium, the Royals said Mon. they'll extend safety netting — KC is the 7th team to announce such plans since a chilling nationally televised episode in Houston May 29 when a Cubs foul liner past third base injured a toddler. The White Sox installed netting to the foul poles — a first — and the Nationals to nearly the poles. The Dodgers, Pirates & Orioles said they'll lengthen netting and the Rangers unveiled extensions for their new ballpark opening in 2020. All 30 parks have netting to at least the far ends of the dugouts, but several fans have been injured since May 29 and pressure is mounting for more protection.

Alonso outslugs Vlad Jr. to win Home Run Derby

The New York Mets' Pete Alonso won a battle of rookies to outslug Toronto's Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and win the Home Run Derby at Progressive Field in Cleveland on Monday night.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Josh Bell, a popular pick to win it all thanks to some prodigious blasts in the regular season, struggled early with just home runs when he used his timeout at 2:33. He heated up after that, but it was too late: Ronald Acuna Jr. beats him, 25 to 18. Bells still leads in home runs hit into the Allegheny River, however.
