NEW YORK -- The New York captains did not get out of the first round in the Home Run Derby.

David Wright and Robinson Cano were eliminated in the opening round of Monday's event.

Wright finished with five homers, tied with Prince Fielder for sixth. Cano was last in the eight-man event with four homers.

The top four hitters advanced: Yoenis Cespedes (17 homers in opening round), Chris Davis (eight), Bryce Harper (eight) and Michael Cuddyer (seven).

Pedro Alvarez, whose initial omission caused Wright to be jeered in Pittsburgh during the weekend, produced only six homers in the opening round and was eliminated.
