TRACY GLANTZ — The State

South Carolina stayed put in the Baseball America Top 25 after going 2-1 this weekend.

The Gamecocks (11-2) are No. 4 for the second-straight week. The rankings took into consideration last week's Tuesday win over Clemson and this weekend's two victories over Cal State Bakersfield.

Baseball America's top five remained unchanged, with Florida, Vanderbilt and Oklahoma ahead of South Carolina.

Virginia and Louisiana State swept their series against then-top 10 schools and moved into the top 10 for the first time this year.

South Carolina dropped one spot to No. 7 in the Collegiate Baseball rankings.
