Freiman puts on show in loss

Khris Davis of Wisconsin won Monday's Midwest League home run derby. But Fort Wayne's Nate Freiman didn't go down easily.

Both sluggers put on a show for the fans. Davis finished with 11 in the final, Freiman had eight.

Freiman hit 12 in the opening round and six more in the second round.
