The Virginia Cavaliers remain atop the Baseball America Top 25 rankings for a second week in a row. And that's with their ace, Danny Hultzen, taking a loss in Game 1 of their Saturday doubleheader. Hultzen allowed six run in the sixth inning, but four were unearned because a Jared King error eventually led to scoring plays for NC State. Hultzen allowed 11 hits in 7.1 innings during the 6-2 loss.
The rest of the top seven teams remained the same, though No. 4 Vanderbilt was the only team to go undefeated last week. The Commodores are tied with No. 2 South Carolina and No. 5 Florida for the SEC lead. The Gamecocks will be without OF Jackie Bradley for a few weeks after he injured his wrist.
The back of the Top 25 continues to fluctuate. Miami jumped from No. 25 to No. 16 after taking two of three from then-No. 14 North Carolina. Stanford, Troy and Connecticut entered the rankings at 21-23.
The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper kept Virginia No. 1 overall, but their rankings after No. 2 South Carolina diverge from BA's. Vanderbilt and Texas take the next two spots, but have Oregon State three spots lower than BA at No. 6. TCU is No. 7 in this poll and No. 11 in BA's.
In the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, Virginia is the No. 1 team, but not undisputed. Vanderbilt received three first-place votes and moved up a spot to No. 2. TCU moved four spots to No. 10.
