College Baseball Rankings: LSU Moves Up To No. 13 After 5-0 Week

The LSU Tigers moved up one spot to No. 13 in the latest Baseball America Top 25 poll. The Tigers didn't let their series loss to the Appalachian St. Mountaineers drag them down during this past week when they played five games. The Tigers wound up winning all five contests, though that was expected against Grambling State, McNeese State and a three-game series against the Dartmouth Big Green. Kevin Gausman struck out six and allowed four runs in 6.1 innings against Dartmouth.

The Florida Gators remain the No. 1 team in the country after sweeping the Miami Hurricanes in a three-game weekend series. Miami dropped three spots to No. 15. Florida's Preston Tucker and Miami's Peter O'Brien didn't have great series, but O'Brien did hit his fourth home run of the season. Both elected to return to college after the Colorado Rockies rafted them in 2011.

Ross Stripling, another 2011 Rockies draftee, threw eight shutout innings and struck out five for the No. 6 Texas A&M Aggies over the weekend.
