Another day, another round of The Shoes That Won Last Night. Recapping Saturday's action, the St. Louis Cardinals have now taken a 2-0 lead over the Dodgers in the NLCS, Missouri pulled out a big Top 25 upset, and the NBA preseason continued.

After Friday night's 13-inning battle between St. Louis and Los Angeles, Saturday's game was more of a standard affair. The Cards picked up a 1-0 win and now have a 2-0 lead over the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. St. Louis was powered by a run from David Freese (pictured) and a strong night of pitching from Michael Wacha.

On the collegiate gridiron, No. 25 Missouri was able to down No. 7 Georgia 41-26. Missouri was powered by a stellar day of receiving from L'Damian Washington, who had 115 yards and two touchdowns on just 7 receptions. Elsewhere, the No. 2 Oregon Ducks extended their undefeated campaign to 6-0 with a 45-24 win over No. 16 Washington. Oregon QB Marcus Mariota was the fuel for the Ducks, going 24/31 for 366 yards and three touchdowns.

Wrapping up the night, NBA preseason action rolled on as Taj Gibson, Kevin Love, DeAndre Jordan, and Darren Collison all had great showings on the hardwood. Continue on to find out what sort of numbers these guys put up and what they wore to get there.
