Monday night’s MLB Homerun Derby came down to a battle of Yankees vs. Red Sox.  And it was all Bronx Bombers.

Robinson Cano had a championship quality night setting off some serious fireworks in Arizona.

Cano is crowned the Derby Champion after hitting his record 12th home run in the final round. His tying home run was belted 472 feet, the second longest of the night. He defeated Red Sox 1st baseman Adrian Gonzalez 12 to 11.

Cano’s father, Jose, served as his pitcher as he delighted fans at Chase Field knocking 8 in just the first round. The Yankees 2nd baseman was part of an American League team that rolled over the National League with only Milwaukee’s Prince Fielder advancing to the second round.  No one from the Senior Circuit made the finals.

The big surprise of the Derby was Toronto’s Jose Bautista.  The Blue Jays slugger hit just 4 total homers. However, he wasn’t the weakest showing – Dodgers centerfielder Matt Kemp hit just 2 home runs in the first round.
