Redbirds win 10th World Series Title

SPECIAL TO ESPN.COM

October 30, 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

  • The St. Louis Cardinals, after winning just 83 games during the regular season, beat the Padres, Mets and Tigers to win the World Series. Congratulations to Tony LaRussa, Albert Pujols, World Series MVP David Eckstein and company.

  • The Colts and Bears remained unbeaten with wins. Peyton Manning threw for 345 yards as Indianapolis won at Denver.

  • Virginia Tech running back Branden Ore ran for 203 yards as Virginia Tech beat Clemson.

  • Temple snapped a 20-game losing streak, beating Bowling Green.

    STOCK DOWN

  • USC was upset at Oregon State. Pete Carroll's team was down 33-10 and rallied, but fell short 33-31 to the Beavers, sending the BCS into bedlam.

  • The Eagles offense was non-existent at home in a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Philadelphia was 4-1 at one point, but Andy Reid's team is struggling right now.

  • The Steelers fell to 2-5 after a loss to the Raiders. Oakland won despite totaling under 100 yards on offense.

  • Sergio Garcia bogeyed the final hole at the Volvo Masters in Spain and that cost him the European PGA Tour money title.
