ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Boston slugger David Ortiz has won his first Home Run Derby title, hitting 10 homers in the final round to beat Florida's Hanley Ramirez at Angel Stadium.
  
Big Papi added another highlight to his resurgent season with a relentless series of drives into the elevated stands above the right-field wall.
  
Ortiz hit 21 homers in the first two rounds of his fourth derby before holding off Ramirez and beating a field missing most of the majors' top power hitters.
  
Ramirez matched Ortiz's 21 homers in the first two rounds, pulling most of his shots over the left-field wall. But Ortiz became just the second slugger to reach double digits in the final round, while Ramirez managed only five.
