Home Run Derby. Portly Prince Fielder of the Milwaukee Brewers beat Texas Rangers first baseman Nelson Cruz 6-5 in the final round to win the Home Run Derby (I refuse to call it the State Farm Home Run Derby – shit – I just did). Hometown favorite Albert Pujols was eliminated in the second round after advancing out of the first via a “Swing Off” after he, Joe Mauer and Carlos Pena all hit five homers in the first round. Each had five swings and Pujols hit two homers. Overall, a grand time was had by one and all. [MLB.com]

National Hockey League. Eschewing retirement, Jacques Lemaire instead returned to his old stomping grounds and will return as head coach of the New Jersey Devils, a team he coached for five years in the ’90s when he led the Devils to their first Stanley Cup title in 1995. The neutral zone trap is back where it belongs. [NHL.com]

Woman Accidentally Shot While Sitting On Toilet. 53-year-old Janifer Bliss was accidentally shot in the leg while sitting on the toilet in a hotel restroom when a woman in the next stall dropped her gun and it discharged. Bliss was sent to the hospital with minor injuries but will be okay. Still, talk about your crappy luck. [AOL/AP]
