Yankees over Red Sox yet again

Yankees 2B Robinson Cano won the 2011 State Farm Home Run Derby by beating Red Sox 1B Adrian Gonzalez 12-11 in the Final Round. Both hitters set a record for most homers in a final round. A-Gone obviously set his first, and Cano broke it. Both slugged 20 homers thru the first 2 rounds. Brewers 1B and NL team captain Prince Fielder hit the longest homer of the night measured at 474 feet.  Cano’s father Jose, a former major league pitcher, pitched to Cano & Big Papi for the AL team.

After the jump is a video of the catch of the night, and also a preview of the starting lineups for Tuesday’s All Star Game.
