Baseball Breaks Into Baseball America National Rankings

March 5, 2018

SAN DIEGO  – After an 8-3 start to the 2018 season, the San Diego State baseball team saw itself ranked No. 25 by Baseball America Monday morning. 

The Aztecs are the only Mountain West team featured in the rankings and the third highest-ranked California team, trailing only No. 4 Stanford (11-1) and No. 11 UCLA (9-2). The Aztecs are also the fifth highest-ranked team in a non-power five conference.

It's the first time the Aztecs have received a national ranking spot from Baseball America since the team was No. 19 on April 23, 2009. 

SDSU is 8-3 on the year, with two of those losses coming when the game was tied entering the ninth inning. 

The No. 25-ranked Aztecs take on Arizona in a road midweek game in Tucson, Ariz. on Tuesday, March 6, at 6:00 p.m.
