Black edges Simpson in HR Derby

Chicago's Sean Simpson put on quite a show in round 2 of this year's Home Run Derby but it was Nashville's Gregg Black who came out on top in the end. Simpson launched 19 home runs in the second round to advance to the third and final round in a showdown with Black. Black out homered Simpson 10-7 in the final bracket, giving him this year's Home Run Derby crown, even though Black and Simpson both ended up with 33 total home runs for the event.

The event's longest home run belonged to Louisville 1B Ernest Montgomery who hit one 521 ft. Montgomery also finished in third place for the event.
