Tiger wins in playoff

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

August 28, 2006 | 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

•Tiger Woods beat Stewart Cink in a playoff to win the Bridgestone event. Tiger now has 52 PGA Tour wins, tied for fifth all-time with the legendary Byron Nelson.

•USA basketball has looked good in the FIBA world tournament, blowing out Australia the other day.

•Matt Kenseth has moved up to second place in the NASCAR point standings, just seven out of first.

•Willy Taveras of the Astros now has a 30-game hit streak.

•The Oakland Raiders are 4-0 in the preseason. I know the games don't count but Art Shell and company have to be happy.

STOCK DOWN

•The Red Sox were swept by the Mariners.

•The Washington Redskins lost 41-0 to the New England Patriots. Joe Gibbs cannot be happy with his team's play.

•Florida Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria refused to give manager Joe Girardi a vote of confidence. Girardi has done an outstanding job with a very young squad.

•Terrell Owens was reportedly fined for missing a rehab session for his hamstring, as well as a team meeting.

•The Arizona Diamondbacks are 1-6 in their last seven games.
