Tonight's Home Run Derby will feature a Cardinal for the second consecutive year. This year, Carlos Beltran represents club and league. Beltran's 20 dingers place him second in the National League, four behind Ryan Braun and one ahead of Giancarlo Stanton, neither of whom join Beltran on the NL side. Stanton is injured and Braun isn't participating.
