Cano Edges Kemp In 2011 Home Run Derby

Robinson Cano barely edged out Matt Kemp and a field of others, winning the 2011 Home Run Derby at Chase Field:

PHOENIX -- Robinson Cano thought about hitting the Miller Lite sign, a 472-foot drive off an advertisement a good 50 feet or more above and well behind the swimming pool at Chase Field.

"That was my favorite one. I'm going to have that in my mind for the next two or three weeks. I wonder how far could it be, that in New York?" he said. "I got power."

Kemp ended up finishing eighth, a mere 30 home run shots behind Cano.
