Jesus Montero clubbed 12 home runs in the Minor League Baseball Home Run Derby on Monday, but did not advance to the finals.

The Bisons first baseman smacked seven in the first round and added five more in the second, but it wasn't enough as Pawtucket's Chris Marrero and Reno's Kyle Jenson advanced to the finals.

Marrero took home the crown for the International League, slugging 18 homers in the championship round.

Marlins slugger Gioncarlo Stanton won the MLB HR Derby, defeating the Reds Todd Frazier.
