Oakland A’s outfielder Yoenis Cespedes successfully defended his Home Run Derby title on Monday night, powering his way past Cincinnati Reds’ third baseman Todd Frazier, 9-1, in the final round at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The victory in the All-Star skills contest makes Cespedes the first back-to-back winner since Ken Griffey, Jr. in 1998 and 1999.

The 28-year old Cespedes hit 30 total homers (two came in a first round tie-breaker), while outfielder Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays connected on 14, including 10 in the first round, the most in any round during the evening, with Frazier belting 11.
