A-Rod hits another HR

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

June 18, 2007 | Dick's Stock Watch provides a fast-glance review of the past week in the world of sports, charting whose stock is up and whose is down.

STOCK UP
• Angel Cabrera of Argentina edged Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk to win the U. S. Open golf tournament.

• The San Antonio Spurs won their fourth NBA championship in nine years. When is Gregg Popovich going to get some love? He has done an incredible job there.

• Alex Rodriguez has been on fire. He hit another home run Sunday night. How many players would like to hit 27 home runs in a season? He is there already and we are not at the midway point.

• Lexie Thompson became the youngest player to qualify for the U. S. Women's Open golf tournament 12 years, four months and one day.

STOCK DOWN
• The Baltimore Orioles have lost eight straight games and the bullpen has really been struggling.

• Tom Glavine of the Mets has a 17.28 ERA in his last 2 starts.

• The San Francisco Giants are 6-16 in their last 22 games, including a three-game series sweep by the Red Sox in Fenway.
