‘Canes baseball team earns nation’s No. 1 ranking – Sun Sentinel

The Hurricanes didn’t get to play as many games this weekend as they wanted. But the one they did get in — a 10-2 victory over Notre Dame in cold South Bend — helped make them the nation’s top-ranked baseball team.

Miami, which has nine straight games and 20 of its last 22, took the top spot in the most recent Baseball America Top 25 which was released early Monday morning.

The Hurricanes (25-4 overall, 11-2 ACC) rose a spot in the rankings after going 2-0 last week while rival Florida, which previously held the top spot, dropped two of three against Mississippi State.

According to Baseball America, it’s the first time Miami has held the top spot since June 10, 2008. Florida, meanwhile, fell to No. 3. The Hurricanes also rose to the top spot in two other college baseball polls released Monday morning: The Perfect Game Top 25 and the D1 Baseball Top 25.
