Out:

Teams are starting
to solidify their places in the rankings, as No. 13 Pepperdine, which
dropped three places, is one of the biggest movers this week. The
Waves have lost just one weekend series, but they are coming off
their first three-loss week of the season.

Two
weeks after a series loss to Gonzaga bumped it out of the rankings,
San Diego has strung together six wins in seven games to climb back
up to No. 19. Sophomore lefties Brian Matusz and Josh Romanski
combined to give up just two runs in 16.0 innings last
weekend.

Michigan and North Carolina State both
jumped into the rankings. Michigan is on a 16-game winning streak
after sweeping rival Ohio State in Columbus. The Wolfpack, coming off
a series win at Miami, have won four of its six weekend series
against Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.

The
staff of Baseball America determines the Top 25 rankings. Records
indicated are through games of April 15 and do not include
ties.
