College Top 25: April 25

DURHAM, N.C.—Virginia overcame Midseason Player of the Year Danny Hultzen’s first loss of the year Saturday, winning its weekend series against North Carolina State and remaining atop the Baseball America Top 25 for the second consecutive week.

After a tumultuous week at the top of the rankings last week, the top seven teams held steady this week, all winning series against conference foes. The only team in the Top 10 to lose its weekend series was Cal State Fullerton, dropping the Titans from seventh to 10th this week.

Miami was the Top 25′s biggest gainer this week, moving up nine spots to No. 16 after winning a series at then-No. 14 North Carolina. Southern Mississippi also improved five spots after sweeping its series against Marshall.

For the second week in a row, three new teams entered the Baseball America Top 25. Stanford and Troy re-entered the rankings after dropping out just last week. Stanford beat then-No. 20 UCLA, returning to the poll at No. 21. Troy slotted in just behind Stanford after sweeping Western Kentucky. Connecticut also returned to the rankings after a month-long absence. The Huskies extended their winning streak to nine games with a 5-0 week, including a sweep of Georgetown.

The Pac-10 and the ACC each have five teams ranked in the Baseball America Top 25, tied for the most of any conference.
