UNC remains No. 1, NC State moves up to No. 5

Posted April 29, 2013

Despite a two-loss week that was capped with a rainout, the University of North Carolina maintained their No. 1 ranking in the the majority of the college baseball polls for the 11th consecutive week.

At 41-4, the Tar Heels held off Vanderbilt (39-6) for the top spot in each of the Baseball America, USA Today and the Perfect Game polls released Monday. Vandy had a perfect 4-0 week and leap-frogged LSU (39-6) in all three polls while making the full climb to No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll, edging out UNC by one-point in the voting.

NC State (34-11) moved up one spot to No. 5 in each of the Baseball America and Perfect Game polls with a 2-1 week that included a two-game split against UNC. They jumped two spots to No. 7 in the CBN poll and just one spot to No. 10 in the USA Today poll.

On Friday, UNC earned a game-one win at NC State with Kent Emanuel striking out nine hitters in eight innings in front of the second largest crowd ever at Doak Field at Dail Park. On Saturday, Wolfpack ace Carlos Rodon struck out 10 Tar Heels in six innings to help NC State even the series. Sunday's game was slated to be televised on ESPNU, but was rained out and will not be made up.

Cal State Fullerton (36-7) held the No. 4 ranking in each poll while Virginia (38-8) fell to No. 6 in the Perfect Game and No. 7 in both the Baseball America and USA Today polls.

Elsewhere around the ACC, Florida State (35-9) remained at No. 10 in this week’s Baseball America poll despite a 4-0 week. They climbed to No. 9 in the Perfect game ledger and No. 8 in the USA Today. Also in the Baseball America poll, Clemson vaulted from No. 25 to No. 18 and Virginia Tech entered the rankings at No. 25. Georgia Tech fell out of the rankings after slotting at No. 20 a week ago.

Virginia, Florida State and Clemson all cracked the top-15 in the CBN poll, but Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech each failed to even crack the top-30. The USA Today Poll slotted Clemson at No. 22 and Georgia Tech at No. 24, but Virginia Tech was designated to No. 43 and among the receiving votes.

UNC-Wilmington, despite a win over top-ranked UNC last week, also fell from the rankings. The Seahawks sputtered over the weekend losing two of three at Towson and relinquished their previously No. 23 and No. 21 spots.

Campbell checked in at No. 29 for the second consecutive week in the CBN poll. Each UNCW and Campbell were receiving votes in the USA Today poll.
