Baseball Climbs As High as No. 20 in Polls
CORAL GABLES, Fla. — The Miami Hurricanes baseball team, coming off its second consecutive ACC road sweep, climbed as high as No. 20 in the college baseball polls released Monday.
Miami (21-12, 11-4 ACC) rose from No. 24 to No. 20 in Collegiate Baseball Newspaper‘s weekly rankings. The Hurricanes also re-entered the Baseball America poll (No. 24) and Perfect Game‘s weekly rankings (No. 25) after a two-week absence from both polls.
The weekly USA Today Coaches Top 25 Poll had Miami featured at No. 24 after being unranked last week.
The Hurricanes traveled to English Field in Blacksburg, Va., this past weekend and captured three straight games against Virginia Tech, extending their winning streak to a season-long eight games.
Miami, which had never before captured back-to-back ACC three-game road sweeps since joining the conference in 2004, is just one game behind No. 3 Virginia for first place in the ACC Coastal Division race.
