College Baseball Top 25: Kevin Gausman And LSU Tigers Go 2-2, Drop To No. 15 In Latest Baseball America Poll

The latest Baseball America college baseball top 25 poll has come out and Kevin Gausman's LSU Tigers have fallen four spots to No. 15 this week. The Tigers traveled to face Auburn and dropped two of three in the series, winning only the last game on Sunday. Gausman, a Colorado native, took a no-decision in Friday's 4-3 loss. He allowed two runs in five innings while striking out eight and walking five. Auburn won the first two games, 4-3 and 3-2 (10), before falling on Sunday, 4-3.

Gausman is 4-0 in six starts with a 1.54 ERA and 50 strikeouts.

Remaining at No. 1 are the Florida Gators, a team that features 2011 16th round Colorado Rockies draft pick Preston Tucker. The Gators took two of three from the South Carolina Gamecocks, a team that fell three spots to No. 11. Tucker, who will re-enter the MLB Draft as a senior this June is hitting .333/.402/.688 with eight home runs and 23 RBI.

Moving up three spots to No. 7 are the Texas A&M Aggies. They swept a three-game road series against Pepperdine. On Saturday, Ross Stripling threw a complete game after allowing two runs on eight hits and striking out nine. Stripling, the Rockies' unsigned ninth round pick in 2011, is now 4-0 in six starts with a 2.56 ERA in 45.2 innings. He has struck out 47 and walked eight.

And coming in at No. 12, Miami remained in the same position as last week. The Hurricanes took two of three from Maryland over the weekend with the help of catcher Peter O'Brien, the Rockies' unsigned third round pick in 2011. He leads the Miami offense with a .388/.486/.776 batting line and eight home runs and 28 RBI.
