Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers steals the show at the Home Run Derby at Yankee Stadium, with a monstrous first round performance. Hamilton would blast a record 28 home runs in the first round, including 13 straight to bring the Bronx to its feet. However, in the end Minnesota Twins 1B Justin Morneau would win the derby as Hamilton ran out of gas.
