MLB – Yoenis Cespedes From The Oakland A’s Wins Home Run Derby

Posted on July 15, 2014 in Professional Sports News.

Oakland Athletics slugger Yoenis Cespedes is celebrating a second straight Home Run Derby title.

Cespedes hit a total of 30 home runs and beat the Cincinnati Reds’ Todd Frazier 9-1 in the final to hoist the trophy at Minnesota’s Target Field.

Cespedes is just the second person to win back-to-back Home Run Derby crowns, joining Ken Griffey Jr. who accomplished the feat in 1998 and 1999.

Cespedes is also just the third player to win the Derby multiple times, joining Prince Fielder in that class.
