Trojan baseball back in the polls

After a dominant sweep of Western Kentucky over the weekend, the Trojans are back in college baseball's national polls this week.

The Trojans shot up to number 22 in the Baseball America poll and are ranked 27th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches' Poll.

Troy (30-10, 14-4) checks in at 30th in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Poll. The only poll of the big four that doesn't include the Trojans this week in the College Baseball Newspaper poll – Troy had a high rank of 22 in the CB poll back on April 5.

Also ranking the Trojans this week is the poll which places the Trojans at 19, up from 24 a week ago.

Additionally, Troy moves up to 4th in the Mid-Major poll. The Trojans occupied the top spot in that poll two weeks ago and were sixth last week.

The Trojans lead the Sun Belt by a full three games over second place Florida Atlantic. Troy faces FAU this weekend for a three-game set in Boca Raton.

Head coach Bobby Pierce and the Trojans are in action next on Tuesday when they face UAB at Young Memorial Field in Birmingham. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.
