Matt Kemp's cleats were golden, but his performance in the Home Run Derby? Not so much.
Matt Kemp, National League captain for the Home Run Derby, lasted exactly one round in tonight's tater contest in Kansas City and halved his meager total of two home runs from last year's event. However, he wasn't awarded the booby prize as his American League counterpart and defending champion Robinson Cano endured his own dinger debacle, getting shutout in front of a booing Kauffman Stadium crowd.
Fielder also had the most home runs in any one round (16), and the longest home run of the night at 476 feet.
