Adam Scott watched as Tiger Woods' shot to tie Scott atop the leaderboard fell short, and then looked on as Gary Woodland's went long. Scott was all smiles as he finished with a final-round 66 and a one-shot victory at the Barclays. And Scott's win stirred up PGA Tour Player of the Year talks.

Rounding out the top five in this week's Cross-Sport Power Rankings are a host of baseball players -- from a hard-hitting Tiger to a pair of heat-throwing teammates to a powerful Little Leaguer. Miguel Cabrera places second for a third consecutive week for his ability to hit the long ball. Red Sox starters Jake Peavy and Jon Lester land right behind Cabrera after dominant performances against the Dodgers. At No. 5 is Shunpei Takagi, who helped his team bring home the Little League World Series title to Japan for the ninth time in 14 appearances. Do you agree with our Top 10?
