Prince Fielder wins 2nd Home Run Derby
KANSAS CITY, Mo., July 9 (UPI) -- Detroit Tigers first baseman Prince Fielder won his second Home Run Derby Monday, hitting 12 out in the final round to beat Toronto's Jose Bautista.
Fielder, who won the pre-All-Star Game competition in 2009 while a member of the Milwaukee Brewers, became the first player to claim the contest while representing different leagues.
Fielder cracked 28 homers in all, including the night's longest shot of 476 feet at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., the site of Tuesday's 2012 All-Star Game.
Cano was roundly booed by the Kansas City fans as he failed to hit a single homer in this year's contest.
Bautista -- eliminated in the first round last year -- hung tough in the finals but couldn't match Fielder's output.
Reports: Camby to Knicks in sign-trade
NEW YORK, July 9 (UPI) -- Forward Marcus Camby is returning to the New York Knicks for his 17th NBA season as part of a sign-and-trade package, multiple reports indicated Monday.
Yahoo! Sports reported Camby will sign a three-year, $13.2 million with the Rockets, who will then trade him to the Knicks for guard Toney Douglas, forward Josh Harrellson, center Jerome Jordan and second-round draft picks in 2014 and 2015.
The move will provide New York with more frontcourt depth and rebounding power to pair with Tyson Chandler while the Rockets got some solid young players, USA Today said.
Camby averaged 4.9 points and 9.0 rebounds in 59 games last season, 19 of them with the Rockets. He has averaged 9.7 points and 9.9 rebounds in 949 career games.
Douglas averaged 6.2 points in 38 games, Harrellson put in 4.4 points over 37 contests and Jordan averaged 2.0 points through 21 games last season for New York.
Judge dismisses Armstrong TRO request
AUSTIN, Texas, July 9 (UPI) -- A U.S. judge dismissed Lance Armstrong's restraining order request Monday, only hours after the cyclist claimed a drug case against him was unconstitutional.
Armstrong's attorneys filed the 80-page motion in U.S. District Court in Austin, Texas, asking U.S. Judge Sam Sparks to halt the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency case.
Armstrong claimed the investigation was "causing irreparable injury" to him and requested a jury trial to hear the charges, the Austin (Texas) American-Statesman reported Monday.
But Sparks dismissed the temporary restraining order request later in the day, calling it "unnecessary" and "totally irrelevant" to the charges against him, The New York Times reported.
"This court is not inclined to indulge Armstrong's desire for publicity, self-aggrandizement or vilification of defendants, by sifting through 80 mostly unnecessary pages in search of the few kernels of factual material relevant to his claims," Sparks wrote.
Armstrong had asked the agency be kept from stripping him of his seven Tour de France championships, and sought reimbursement for legal fees and "further equitable relief."
Sparks, however, said the motion seemed meant "solely to increase media coverage of this case, and to incite public opinion against" the USADA.
The anti-doping agency, stating it had testimony from 10 anonymous cyclists and new but unrevealed analysis of blood tests taken in 2009-2010, filed formal charges against Armstrong on June 28, alleging he participated in a doping conspiracy for at least 14 years.
Armstrong, preferring to take the matter to federal court instead of an arbitration panel, said in his motion that his Fifth Amendment rights had been violated.
Tim Herman, Armstrong's Austin-based attorney, told the American-Statesman he would file a much shorter version of the motion with court by Wednesday.
U.S. goalie Solo tests positive, warned
COLORADO SPRINGS, July 9 (UPI) -- U.S. women's soccer national team goaltender Hope Solo has been warned followed a positive doping test, officials announced Monday.
The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency said Solo will still be able to compete in this month's 2012 Olympic Games in London despite the infraction.
The agency said the 30-year-old goalkeeper tested positive for the prohibited performance-enhancing substance Canrenone during an out-of-competition test conducted June 15.
Solo said the result was due to prescription medication she was taking.
"I took a medication prescribed by my personal doctor for pre-menstrual purposes that I did not know contained a diuretic," she said. "Once informed of this fact, I immediately cooperated with USADA and shared with them everything they needed to properly conclude that I made an honest mistake, and that the medication did not enhance my performance in any way."
Canrenone is classified as a "specified" substance under international rules, meaning its use can carry a reduced sanction.
