Cano wins HR Derby, beating ex-Ranger Gonzalez

PHOENIX (AP) - Robinson Cano outslugged Adrian Gonzalez to win the All-Star Home Run Derby that turned into a Yankees-Red Sox showdown, even through his Boston rival made the biggest splash at Chase Field.

Batting last, Cano defeated Gonzalez 12-11 in the finals Monday night after they each hit 20 home runs through two rounds.

Again highlighting the dangers of trying to catch a ball at a big league ballpark, a fan standing on a table above the pool deck fell over earlier trying to catch a Prince Fielder homer. The fan was grabbed by his brother before going all the way over, where he could have fallen about 20 feet, and was dangling by his feet when he was pulled back up.

Last week, a 39-year-old fan, Shannon Stone, died while trying to catch a ball thrown into the stands at a Rangers game in Arlington, Texas.
