Duvall dominates Derby

The season 4 Home Run Derby wasn't much of a contest in the end. Houston Riverdogs 3B Monte Duvall blew away Las Vegas Gamblers' Wally Harvey in the final round to secure the Home Run Derby championship. The season 3 Rookie of the Year slugged nine homeruns in the final round, seven more than Harvey's final round total of two.

The event's longest home run belonged to Trenton's Denny Moss who's sixth and final home run of the competition traveled an estimated 530 ft. Moss' fourth home run also traveled over 500 ft.

Duval finished the competition with 28 total homeruns, 10 more than the runner up Harvey. Atlanta's Matty Matos finished third with 15 total homeruns. Duvall joins past winners Greg Black and Osvaldo Johnson as Home Run Derby champions. Johnson, who won back-to-back Derby titles in seasons 1-2, finished fourth in this year's contest.
