Fielder Edges Bautista in Home Run Derby

Prince Fielder

Prince Fielder won his second Home Run Derby title on Monday night in Kansas City, defeating Jose Bautista in the final round by a score of 12-7.

The two were added to the team by American League captain Robinson Cano, who was booed by the Kansas City crowd and went without a single long ball. But the night belonged to Fielder as he led an electric atmosphere at Kauffman Stadium.

Eight of Fielder’s 28 total home runs landed in the right field fountain, and the Tigers slugger also tied Cano’s 2011 record with 12 blasts in the final round. He hit the fewest home runs in the first round of the four advancing players but rallied with 11 second round homers. Bautista overcame a tiebreak with young Angels star Mark Trumbo to make the final. Tomorrow night the festivities continue with the 2012 All-Star Game.
