Prince Fielder put on a hitting clinic in the finals of the 2012 Home Run Derby by blasting 12 homers to beat out Toronto’s Jose Bautista to complete the Show-Me-State sweep. Fielder, who also won in St. Louis in 2009, finished the night with 28 homers total. Fielder barely made it out of the first round, finishing with just five homers, but thanks to an injured Matt Kemp (1) and Robinson Cano being shutout, Fielder skirted into the second round.
Fielder joins Ken Griffey Jr. as the only two players to win the Home Run Derby more than once.
