Cal Poly baseball climbs to #21 in national polls

The Cal Poly baseball team has climbed six spots to 21st in this week's Collegiate Baseball Newspaper national Division I poll. The Mustangs are also ranked for the first time this season in the USA Today Coaches Poll at number 25. They're also up three spots to 25th in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association poll.

The Mustangs, which won their first seven games of the season for the first time in their 19 year Division I history, took two out of three at the University of Washington over the weekend to improve to 9-1 on the year.

Cal Poly was ranked twice briefly a year ago. They were ranked 22nd by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper after a 7-1 start and 27th in early April after sweeping UC Irvine. Cal Poly's highest national ranking was 12th by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and Baseball America after getting out to a 17-4 start in 2009. They were also ranked for brief periods in 2006 and 2007.

Cal Pol plays five games this week. They host Holy Cross for 6 pm contests on Tuesday and Wednesday at Baggett Stadium. They open a three game series at Kansas State on Friday in Manhattan, Kansas.
