Yoenis Cespedes won his second consecutive Home Run Derby Monday by defeating Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier in the final round.
The Cuban Missle became the first to go back-to-back in the Home Run Derby since Ken Griffey Jr. did it back in 1997-98. Cespedes' 62 fence clearing shots this year rank sixth all-time, but it is doubtful that the other six (Ortiz, Griffey Jr., Fielder, Giambi and Sosa) partook in the Derby in such a spacious park as Target field and they definitely did not have to contend with the type of conditions that faced this season's Derby participants as it rained on-and-off all night and the 56 degree temperature at first pitch was the lowest temp. ever for a Home Run Derby.
