RICHMOND, Va. – Off to the hottest start in school history, the 20-3 VCU baseball team now finds itself in the national polls.
After a series sweep of St. Bonaventure capped off an undefeated weekend, the Rams are ranked No. 25 in the USA Today College Baseball Coaches Poll and No. 26 in the College Baseball Newspaper Poll.
This marks the first time VCU has been ranked since 2003. That year the Rams reached the NCAA Tournament after capturing the CAA Tournament title.
The Rams are one of just five teams in Division I baseball that have totaled 20 wins this season. VCU is currently riding an eight game unbeaten streak dating back to March 12, when the Black and Gold thumped Virginia Tech 21-14 in Blacksburg.
VCU will return to action on Friday when they travel to Fairfax, Va. to take on the Atlantic 10's newest member George Mason. First pitch in that contest is slated for 3 p.m.
