New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano captured the 2011 Home Run Derby, beating Boston first baseman Adrian Gonzalez. Cano, who was in the derby for the first time in his career, smacked a final round-record 12 long balls to beat Gonzalez. Cano's father, Jose, pitched to him in the derby. Cano tied Gonzalez with a 472-foot blast to right-center field and then paused for a moment to grab a sports drink and converse with his American League teammates. Jose then delivered a ball that ended up 408 feet over the wall in right-center to clinch the title. Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday was knocked out in the first round. David Ortiz and Prince Fielder advanced to round two by beating Holliday in a swing-off after all three had five homers in the first round.
