College Baseball Rankings: TCU Drops To No. 10; LSU Rises To No. 8

Baseball America released its Top 25 college baseball rankings on Monday, and the TCU Horned Frogs dropped three spots to No. 10. It wasn't so much a drop in confidence in the team (they went 3-1 last week) as it was the emergence of two teams jumping into the Top 10. The one game that TCU lost was a Matt Purke start in which he picked up his first loss as a collegian. He allowed four runs (one earned) in 3 2/3 innings, walked three and struck out four.

Virginia moved from No. 11 to No. 7 following its three-game sweep of Clemson, but the LSU Tigers made the leap from No. 16 to No. 8 after its three-game sweep of Cal State Fullerton, the then No. 6 team in the country. The Titans fell to No. 13. LSU freshman pitcher Kevin Gausman struck out five and allowed four runs in seven innings for the no-decision.

The UNLV Runnin' Rebels are 16-3 on the season following a four-game sweep of Valparaiso and received 31 votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll, good for No. 32 this week. TCU remained No. 9 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper's Top 30.
