Josh Hamilton is in beast mode. He set a new Home Run Derby record yesterday blasting 28 home runs in the first round before recording 10 outs. At one point, he even hit 13 in a row. His at bat lasted more than 30 minutes! You may think that this was enough to win the contest for Hamilton. It wasn’t. Justin Morneau of the Minnesota Twins defeated Hamilton 5-3 in the final round. The participants who did not advance past the first round included rookie Evan Longoria (3), Chase Utley (5), Grady Sizemore (6) and Dan Uggla (6). Lance Berkman and Ryan Braun advanced to the second round with 8 and 7 home runs, respectively. First round scores are added to second round scores to determine who will be in the championship round and Morneau’s total of 17 was enough to square off against Hamilton who hit 4 home runs and 4 outs before voluntarily stopping. Both Berkman and Braun had a total of 14. 14 is also the number of home runs Justin Morneau had hit in the season so far. Morneau’s win marks the first time a Twin has won the Derby. He also becomes the first Canadian born player to take the title.
