Detroit’s Prince Fielder outslugged Toronto’s Jose Bautista to win Monday night’s Home Run Derby. Fielder defeated Bautista 12-7 in the final round. He’s only the second player to win the derby more than once, having won it in 2009. Ken Griffey Jr. won three derby crowns. Fielder hit 28 during the three rounds, including one measured at 476 feet, longest of the night.
Defending champ Robinson Cano was blanked in his round and was booed by the Kansas City crowd. The crowd believed Cano should’ve selected Kansas City’s Billy Butler to participate in the annual contest. Cano made several comments prior to the event that he was considering Butler for the AL squad.
