St. Louis' Carlos Beltran Finished In Top Four With 12 Homers
Prince Fielder of the Detroit TIgers has won his second State Farm Home Run Derby, outslugging Toronto's Jose Bautista in the championship round Monday Night at Kauffman Stadium In Kansas City.
Fielder, who won the contest at Busch Stadium in St. Louis back in 2009, becomes the second player to win two Home Run Derby titles (Ken Griffey, Junior won three). He hit five over the fence at Kauffman Stadium in the first round, then added 11 in the second round to advance.
Bautista slugged 11 homers in the first round, then added two in the second round, but after a tiebreaker with the Angels' Mark Trumbo, it was enough to advance as total home runs from round one and two were added together. Both Bautista and Trumbo had a combined 13 long balls in the first two rounds, but Bautista won a swing off 2-1.
In the finals, Fielder blasted 12 balls over the wall. Bautista hit seven to finish in second.
Fielder also hit the two longest home runs of the night, both measuring 476 feet, including one in the first round and one in the finals.
St. Louis' Carlos Beltran hit seven homers in the first round, which tied for second with Trumbo, but could only manage five in the second round for a total of 12.
