College Baseball Top 25: LSU Tigers Move Up 2 Spots To No. 11 In Baseball America Poll

The latest Baseball America Top 25 poll results are out and Kevin Gausman's LSU Tigers have moved up two more spots to No. 11. Gausman, a Denver native, struck out 11 in 8.2 innings for a no-decision against the Mississippi St. Bulldogs on Friday night. He was outdone by Bulldogs starter Chris Stratton, who struck out 17 batters in 8.2 innings. The Tigers won the game in 10 innings by scoring two runs, the game-winner on a walkoff RBI single. The Tigers took two of three from the Bulldogs.

The Rockies's 2011 draft picks who returned to college are also having a strong run of things. Preston Tucker continues to play for the No. 1 Florida Gators, having gone 4-for-11 with six RBI and four runs scored. He hit two more home runs to reach eight on the season. He was the Rockies' unsigned 16th round draft pick in 2011.

The Texas A&M Aggies remained at No. 10 this week and had a rebound start from Ross Stripling, the Rockies' 2011 ninth round selection. He picked up his third win following nine innings of two-run ball, striking out eight. His season ERA is at 2.70.

At No. 12, the Miami Hurricanes moved up two spots from last week. Rockies unsigned third round pick Peter O'Brien is the starting catcher for that team as a senior. He is hitting .389/.483/.792 with eight doubles, seven home runs and 25 RBI in 20 games.
